Is it possible to run remote docker?



I want to run docker remotely. But I couldn't because of idea path validation.

I have windows desktop. But I don't want to run docker on this host. I configured VirtualBox to share it's docker socket for windows host and shared folder.

And I want to build and start my images remotle. But I can't because in docker configuration window I should set the path. If I try to set external path for example


The Idea shows me an error. I need to set the path to docker file and this path should make sence to the command but it doesn't

Hello Alxey,

Currently it's not possible. Feel free to create feature request on YouTrack:

Looks like there is a related issue open for PyCharm with details on a workaround.
Haven't tried it myself, YMMV.
