Get a list of running virtual machines
Use that output to get the ip address of that guest.
vmrun getGuestIPAddress /run/media/tbosmans/fast/Connections_6_ICEC/Connections_6.vmx
(note that this particular call is pretty buggy, and does not return the correct IP address if you have multiple interfaces : https://github.com/vmware/open-vm-tools/issues/93 … still, it can be pretty useful)
You can run any command in the guest, as long as you authenticate properly (-gu / -gp )
So for instance, this command lists all running processes, and you can use the output to actually do something with these processes in a next step (eg. kill them):
vmrun -gu root -gp listProcessesInGuest /run/media/tbosmans/fast/Connections_6_ICEC/Connections_6.vmx
You can also run any command using that mechanism.
