MacOS – Copy and paste between Mac and headless linux VM


I'm running VMWare Fusion on an OSX host machine. I have a redhat VM installed, along with VMWare tools. My VM is headless, meaning I just have the terminal (no graphical interface of any kind). Is there any way I can copy from my host machine and paste into my VM? All of the tutorials and questions on the topic seem to focus on doing this when you're running a GUI in your VM which isn't very useful to me.

If you SSH into the Redhat VM you'll be able to copy and paste the commands into your terminal window. Simple open terminal and type:

ssh yourRedhatUser@redhatIPaddress
