Parallels 7 on 1 week old MacBook Pro. Windows 7 Ultimate VM. I work from home.
MacBook ethernet port is cabled to Cisco firewall. Firewall is cabled to my Airport. I'm not using wireless. Firewall provides VPN access to my work network. (This all works fine on a Dell laptop/Windows 7 I've been using the last few years).
I'm attempting to migrate off the Dell completely, so the VM needs to join the Windows domain at work. When the Mac comes up, it acquires an address from the work DHCP and even has Internet access - that's fine, and quite handy, but in the end, it's the VM that needs to join the domain.
At first, when I'd start the W7 VM, it was sharing the network connection, so I set it for Bridged on the Ethernet, so that (I thought) the VM would attempt to get it's own IP address. No luck - it's coming up 'Autoconfigured' to a 169. address.
Am I missing steps somewhere ? If anyone can educate me bit - thanks ! I did search but didn't see anything quite like this.
