Accessing ASDM for ASA in ASA running in GNS3

I am setting up a lab for ASA.  I have the ASA running in GNS3 and I have configured.  What I'd like to do is to use the ASDM for the ASA, but i cannot make the jump from my phyiscal network to my virtual one.  I am running GNS3 v1.4.4 and VM workstation v12.1.1. When I do a ipconfig on my local PC (the PC that the GNS# and VMware are running on), It shows 1 virtual box IP (169.254.185.200/16) and 2 VMWare NIC's (192.168.129.1/24 & 192.168.15.1/24).  I can ping all three IP addresses.  I have bothturned off the firewall  on  the workstation to test connecting to the virtural enviroment and added the subnets to  the allowed list on the firewall both inbound and out bound.  Still no joy.

Did you connect the right nic to the cloud?
Also, make sure NPCAP is installed. If not, rerun GNS3 installation.

You need to do it through the loopback. I linked below step by step guide.
