    Hello,

    I'm using Parallels Desktop 3.0 for mac build 5608, on a Mac Pro. Networking is set to Bridged ethernet with the Default Adapter. the Firewall on the Mac is set to allow all incoming connections.

    I want to be able to see the parallels XP SP2 VM from the network as if it were not a VM, so that I can test sending installations, group policy changes, etc. But I can't even ping the VM from the host or from any machine on the network. Connectivity from the VM to the network is fine, just not vice versa. For example, the VM gets its IP info from a DHCP server on the net.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    -Andy
