BB10 native Cascades SDK inside VMware - am I able to connect to DevAlpha at host system?



I'm rebuilding my development environment and to have finally a more clean system I'm putting every SDK in a own VM using VMware. It works so far great but sadly I have some issues with the BB10 SDK. It is unable to see the to the host connected DevAlpha. (USB connection)


My host IP is, the IP of my VMware is the to the host connected DevAlpha has


I'm able to ping the DevAlpha from my host system but it is not visible inside the VM.

I'm also unalbe to connect this USB Device to the VM because the host is grabbing it as soon as it gets connected and don't allow to disconnect it except by pulling the plug. 


Any ideas, has anybody got this working?
