    Hi,
    Recently I had a system crash in XP that required me to reboot windows from within Parallels. When the system was back online i did not have any connectivity. I rebooted the whole machine from a shut-down and still no connectivity.

    If I revert to a snapshot i get my networking back like nothing happened.

    If i run the windows for few days from that snapshot and reboot i lose my connectivity so i revert and it comes back.

    If run Windows for a few days make a snapshot reboot, i lose my connectivity. But then I can revert to that snapshot i get my connectivity back.

    Any advice would be helpful.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Hello Matt,

    Please check Parallel Port and Host-Guest indicators status in Mac -> System Preferences -> Network. If they are red or yellow, do the following both for Parallel Port and Host-Guest:

    In Configure IP field set Off and press Apply button. Then set Using DHCP in Configure IP field and press Apply button again.

    If the indicators are green, I would like to get the output of the following commands:

    ipconfig /all from CMD on Windows side (Start -> Run -> type cmd);
    ifconfig from Terminal on Mac side (Application -> Utilities);
    tracert www.parallels.com from CMD on Windows side.

    Best regards,
    Xenos

    Hi,

    Parallel-NAT is green, Paralell-Guust is red and the fix did not work.

    Here are screen captures of ipconfig. ipconfig /all would not run.

    thanks,
    Matt
