I'm running VMware Fusion on my Mac with an Ubuntu guest VM configured to use NAT for networking. I can access the VM from the host using its DHCP-assigned vmnet8 IP (172.16.90.128), but I'd like to be able to access it as ubuntu.local as well, e.g.:
mac:~$ ssh ubuntu.local
I am running the avahi daemon in the guest VM but it doesn't seem to be reaching the Mac.
I found a similar question, but none of the answers really addressed the issue; I don't want to configure the host's DHCP server or ssh config.
