According to the Vagrant documentation, I should be able to bind a port forward to a specific host_ip. However, the binding is being applied to all interfaces ( Any tips on troubleshooting or resolving this issue? I've also tried (without success) setting host_ip to, tried setting a guest_ip (in case both guest_ip and host_ip needed to be set), and also set the protocol.Thanks.

Snippet from Vagrantfile: "forwarded_port", guest: 3389, host: 3390, host_ip: ""

System/Vagrant Info:
$ vagrant --version
Vagrant 2.2.15
$ vagrant plugin list

$ vmware --version

$ sudo ss -tulpn | grep 3390

I suspect that this is a limitation of VMware Workstation. Documentation and conf files seem to lack any mention or setting for host_ip.

Am I missing anything? Is this a VMware Workstation limitation?
