Seems to be a new problem. Running Parallels 5 with OS 10.6.8, Shared Network (GUEST is XP) Host Adaptor shows green with an IP of 10.211.55.2. Guest "ipconfig" shows ip of 10.211.55.8 in the "localdomain" No internet access. If I ping www.google.com, I always get some loss but it resolved the DNS. I tired winsock reset and ip reset. I tried reinstalling Tools. any help would be much appreciated.
