I have been trying to get host Internet Connection Sharing working for awhile without success. when I try to start it, it won't stay started. But to make a long story short, that changed, "corrupted" my host configuration where I would not get a DHCP address automatically created both on the parallels client and the host port connection. I decided to deinstall build 1848 and reinstall. Once I did that, my host started working and was assigning DHCP addresses on both the client and the Mac OS. To build on that success, I figured that I would try the new beta build 1862 to see if the ICS was fixed. It still is not working and sure enough, when I was trying to get that working, it broke my regular host configuration again. Sooooo.... I decided to go back to build 1848, but now after installing it, I NO longer have an entry in my port configuration for host. I tried deinstalling and reinstalling, yet the host configuration does not show up. For those of you who do have it showing: 1. Can you give me the settings so that I can either re-add mine manually 2. Tell me why it does not get added after I install Parallels.
