    I'm on Mac Sierra and I installed ubuntu on Parallel desktop. To access ubuntu, I have to go through a Forticlient installed on the mac to ubuntu via ssh.
    So it will be: Mac -> Forticlient VPN -> Ubuntu (VM)
    My question is: How to connect in SSH from the console of the mac and have access to Ubuntu (which is on the VM). A command like
    <code>ssh -L 10080: localhost: 10080 developer@localhost -p 22</code>
    This command works very well without the forticlient.
    I also tried this thread and this one but it doesn't help.

    Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Mac Sierra 10.12.4
    Parallels Desktop 12.1.3

    Hm. Not sure I understand why do you want to achieve. Do you want just to connect from host to the VM? Or do you need forward port to the VM? Anyway in the command you've provided there's only "localhost", no guest IP address is used.
