Mac OSX Test Connection failed in a virtual pc on a physical Mac



Hey guys,

I've installed both GMS 1.4 and GMS 2 on a virtual Windows PC in a physical Mac.
Strangely GMS 2 has failed to Test Connection which GMS 1.4 has done successfully with the same settings. I've also successfully tested "ping" and "PuTTY". Is there any settings or triggers that could be easily missed in GMS 2 than in GMS 1.4?

I have read Setting Up For macOS. As the article explains "GameMaker Studio 2 requires a physical Mac computer to be able to test or compile your projects, and although you can run macOS in a virtual machine, this is not supported and you should own a mac computer before targeting it with your games."
Meanwhile the GMS 2 for Mac is on the way, does GMS 2 technically support connecting to a physical Mac from a virtual PC like GMS 1.4 did anymore then? Thanks for any help!
