What is the best way to configure ActivityWatch in VMs (VMware Workstation) and host to monitor both on the host?
I configured a setup that works, altering aw_client.ini to point to host’s real IP address. The problem is it seems to only work when the host is assigned an IP.
A wrinkle to this is the host machine is a notebook which may be switching networks. So the real IP will change. It would be nice to have a setup where the INI’s do not need reconfiguring every time the network changes or a new IP issued.
I thought setting up the host as 127.0.1.1 in aw_server.ini and the same in aw_client.ini in the VM would do it, but it doesn’t seem to be working. 127.0.1.1 is known to both when VM network card set up as NAT.
