IIRC the podman socket is a planned thing for macOS as it'll be necessary for certain features that rely on the docker socket and don't use SSH, such as VSCode's Remote Containers extension.

However you can create an SSH tunnel to create the socket locally to allow non-podman clients to utilize the socket over SSH with the DOCKER_HOST environment variable.

  # Get URI
  > podman system connection ls

  # Create tunnel
  > ssh -nNT -L/tmp/podman.sock:/run/user/1000/podman/podman.sock -i ~/.ssh/podman-machine-default ssh://core@localhost:[PORT]

  # Export socket location
  > export DOCKER_HOST='/tmp/podman.sock'



Socket location is wrong. Use this: export DOCKER_HOST='unix:///tmp/podman.sock'
