    Hi there

    I installed IIS on my Windows XP virtual machine, and from Windows I can open the browser and go to http://localhost/default.aspx and see the default page, no problems. It also works when I replace localhost with the assigned Windows IP, which is 10.0.0.5 (I'm using bridged networking).

    Now I would like to see this page from Firefox and Safari in my Mac, but it seems that it won't see Windows' IP. I tried to ping 10.0.0.5 on the console and it won't find it.

    I tried to change to shared networking (then the IP became 10.211.55.3), but no success either.

    I wonder if anyone tried a similar task, and how it was solved? It _should_ be something simple to figure out, but I'm stuck! :confused:

    Switch to bridged Ethernet, write down the VM's IP address, connect to that IP from Mac OS.

    Thanks for the reply, but that's what I've tried, I went to windows command prompt, typed ifconfig, got 10.0.0.5.

    My Mac can't see this IP though, not even ping it.
