    Default configuration of an ethernet network

    which configuration do i need in parallels server when i want to run a window server 2008 standard r2 as a vm on my iMac with lion ( not lion server ) not as a domain network only workgroup and ethernet as connection

    configuration of the physical server ? in virtual networks as bridged network adapter ethernet and in the configuration of the vm network adapter ? bridged in the advanced settings from guest host

    can i configure with the configurations from above the ip-adress direct in the windows server 2008 r2 2008 ?

    Default Hi silkeu

    Actually it depends on your needs and network topology you Parallels Server host is located in.

    Basically you have two major options:
    1. bridged network
    2. Shared network

    The difference is that in first case the Windows (or any other) VM is logically located in the same LAN segment as you Mac host. That means, that you need to configure network adapter to use the same router as default gateway as your Mac does. Also the router should be able to route the IP address you will specify for the VM.

    Example configuration:
    Host OS
    IP address: 192.168.10.10
    Net mask: 255.255.255.0
    Gateway: 192.168.10.1

    Windows VM:
    IP address: 192.168.10.100
    Net mask: 255.255.255.0
    Gateway: 192.168.10.1

    In this case you will not need to set up port forwarding from your Mac to the VM.

    In case of choosing Shared Network your Mac will act as the gateway for the VM. ALso, by default, there is DHCP enabled for this type of network and the VM will pick up intnal IP automatically.

    example:
    Host OS
    IP address: 192.168.10.10
    Net mask: 255.255.255.0
    Gateway: 192.168.10.1

    Windows VM

    IP address: 10.37.131.123
    Net mask: 255.255.255.0
    Gateway: 10.37.131.1

    But in this case, if you need to access the VM services from outside of the Mac, you will need to set up port forwarding in your Parallels Management Console (PMC) server settings menu, e.g to access The VM via RDP we would need to forward 192.168.10.10:3389 to 10.37.131.123:3389.

    Also in both cases you can either select to set up the IP settings from inside the VM, by means of the guest OS, or from the host, using PMC.

    In any case, for Windows-based VMs you will need to have Parallels Tools installed inside the VM.

    hope it helps you to choose the suitable configuration.
