    Hi all,

    I am trying to get Outlook and Skype for Business within Windows 10 working properly.
    Our setup is Macbook > Parallels > Windows 10. Parallels (Win10) is connecting to Mac via Shared Network (recommended). We need to use shared network because the Macbook is using VPN. Bridge network mode would not work at all.

    Anyway, when connected as above, the Windows 10 session cannot start Outlook or SfB properly. it is always asking for user credentials. The rest of the network works because from a browser (within Windows session), I can access websites that are only available within VPN (company's network).
    So what is required to be setup within Parallels' configuration to make the network work for Outlook and Skype for Business

    Hi @BernardH3, you should install that VPN client in Windows virtual machine directly to get access to the Outlook and Skype for Business to be connected to the VPN.
