I have exactly the same problem (in my case building a Jekyll based site running the server in my linux VM and editing from my Mac with --livereload enabled). Host: macOS 12.0.1 (21A559) Parallels Desktop: 17.1.4 (51567) Guest: Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS Just as others have described, if I edit one of the markdown files (e.g. using vim) on my Linux VM the running Jekyll dev server sees the change and reloads the files for the browser. If I edit the same files using IntelliJ IDEA on my MacBook Pro host, the changes are not seen, and the site pages remain cached and unchanged. I'd strongly prefer to keep my servers rolling on the linux guest system(s). I don't particularly want to install the libraries on OSX. With this not working however, I either need to do my editing on the linux guest (ok, but very suboptimal) or install the Ruby stuff on OSX (which I've tried to avoid). Will this be fixed?
