FREEDOME VPN not working on a VMware Fusion 12 host on macOS 11 (Big Sur)
This topic explains what to do if the VPN app prevents network access when using VMware Fusion 12 on a host.
When you install the newest VMware Fusion 12 on macOS 11.0 (Big Sur) and there is a VPN app, such as FREEDOME, used on the host computer, the virtual machines under the VMware Fusion 12 will not have network access.
According to VMware, this is caused by a bug in the macOS Big Sur version.
VMware's workaround to this issue is to use the VPN app only on the virtual machines, not on the host itself.
