    I've been trying to get a simple route working in Parallel Desktop for days with zero success. I had a similar setup working in Mohave using an older version.
    Setup: I have a linux router running on the host-only virtual network at 10.37.129.3. The host OS, Monterey, is at 10.37.129.2. I just want to route traffic through the linux router. The routing table looks fine:
    Code:
    > netstat -nrf inet
    Routing tables
    
    Internet:
    Destination        Gateway            Flags           Netif Expire
    default            10.37.129.3        UGScg       bridge101
    default            link#19            UCSIg       bridge100      !
    default            link#21            UCSIg       bridge101      !
    8.8.8.8            link#21            UHLWIg      bridge101      !
    10.0.0.12          link#21            UHLWIig     bridge101      !

    10.37.129.3        0.1c.42.87.1e.68   UHLWIir     bridge101   1075

    239.255.255.250    1:0:5e:7f:ff:fa    UHmLWIg     bridge100
    This output looks good, too:
    Code:
    > route get 8.8.8.8
       route to: 8.8.8.8
    destination: default
           mask: default
      interface: bridge101
          flags: <UP,DONE,CLONING,STATIC,IFSCOPE,GLOBAL>
     recvpipe  sendpipe  ssthresh  rtt,msec    rttvar  hopcount      mtu     expire
           0         0         0         0         0         0      1500     -1408
    Running tcpdump on the router I can see when Monterey pings the router, but there is no traffic if I set it as the default gateway.
    I can also use the linux router as the Windows 11 default gateway just fine, so the router doesn't appear to be the problem.
    Anyone have any suggestions?!

    I attempted to add the entry in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist to make the Network Service show up like it used to in Mohave to no avail.

    I managed to manually edit
    Code:
    /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist
    and for the Network Service to show, but the old method to use the virtual gateway which worked in Mojave isn't working in Monterey. The routing table is now automatically set and looks correct (same as I manually set it before), but still can't route and tcpdump on the router shows no attempt. The only curious change is
    Code:
    route get 8.8.8.8
    now takes a long time, but with the same result.
