View Full Version : Can't access Windows web site across LAN

Mar 2, 2013, 09:57 PM
I'm trying to test a Windows-based website on various devices on my LAN, running Parallels on a Mac running OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion).

I've tried using Shared Networking and port-forwarding 8080 to the VM. This works when I use "localhost:8080", but times out when I use "{host machine IP}:8080".

I've also tried using Bridged Networking, but that doesn't seem to work either. I either do not get an IP from the DHCP server, or I do but nothing on the network can 'see' the VM.

I'm guessing this is more of an OS X or network problem than with Parallels as such, but any help or experiences would be very much appreciated.
