I am unable to get my YubiKey Neo U2F working in VMWare Workstation Pro 12.5. Testing it against Yubico's test site or against Akisec's test site both fail in the guest operating system (running Debian Linux 9), but both work in the host operating system (running Windows 10).
A search of google indicates I want to add the following to my VMWare guest .vmx file:
usb.generic.allowHID = "TRUE" usb.generic.allowLastHID = "TRUE"
However, this makes no difference. Spoiler: I speculate this is because my virtual machine is encrypted.
