The Windows PC I used with the AusweisApp was connected via cable and  
it worked. The WLAN and the cable network are in the same /24 range in  
my case. So your problem was caused by something else than what you  
I haven't done a packet trace, but I assume they do a broadcast  
message in the local network, so if your VM is in e.g. a NATted  
10.0.0.x/24 and your linux PC in 192.168.1.y/24, it will not work.

You can give it a try without going through the website.

There's also a video tutorial, it seems:

Some basic connection validation can be done via "Gerät und Ausweis  
prüfen". Once this works you could try "Meine Daten einsehen".
