I've downloaded, installed and set up a Ubuntu 19.10 server running under VMware Fusion on my Mac running Catalina. I was able to connect the guest system to my host (after some help from Stack Exchange) by adding
.host:/ /mnt/hgfs fuse.vmhgfs-fuse defaults,allow_other,uid=1000 0 0 to my /etc/fstab.
When I run a docker container, though, I can't access the /mnt/hgfs folder from within my container.
I have also connected docker on my Mac OS to the ubuntu-server using
--driver generic. That shows the same symptoms. (even worse: the -v option just shows an empty folder).
What do I need to do to be able to access my Mac host files from within a docker container running under VMware Fusion?
