    My guest OS is XP SP2. I'm using build 4821 of Parallels.

    I have an apache server set up on my Mac and it is working. It is setup as localhost, so if I type http://localhost in my browser I get the index.html file.

    When I type the same thing in my browser in windows, I get an error saying it can't connect to host localhost. My understanding of Parallels is the VM sort of inherits the network settings of the host OS, so it seems like this should be working. Is there a setting I have to make in the VM?
