Both the radio and SSDR must be on the same sub-net.  I'm guessing your WiFi and radio are on different sub-nets.

I use VMWare with two network adapters. One configured to WiFi with the other configured to Ethernet. This work perfectly for me, I have internet via WiFi and my Flex 6500 via the ethernet direct connection.  73

Frank,

No changes to OSX configuration necessary.
Ethernet cable connected from Flex to OSX computer
OSX WiFi connected to my local WiFi network.

VMWare Fusion Screen shots:
In the VM configure a second network adapter

In the VM configuration this is 1st network adapter setting

In the VM configuration 2nd network adapter setting

Let me know if you have other questions.
