I have VMWare Fusion running on my OS X host and I have a Windows 8 Pro guest VM running. On my host I have an SSH tunnel open on port 1010. The SSH tunnels works great from OS X Safari once I set the SOCKS proxy to localhost:1010.
I would like to achieve the same sort of thing on my Windows 8 VM, but localhost:1010 fails to work as a SOCKS proxy. I assume this is because it's a different localhost to my host's localhost. My Windows VM is currently using NAT mode. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
