I am wondering if they have any plans to fix the 'Shared Network' problems? I have wasted countless hours trying to fix the problems, going through long problem solving processes to no avail. It manifests itself with Windows guest hosts not being able to join the network on startup of the VM using the shared network. Using a bridged network works fine, but for all sort of reasons, this isn't ideal for some users - including me. This seems to be a problem that Parallels never seems to fix, and stretches back (in some form) to at least 2008! http://slaptijack.com/software/parallels-shared-networking-stopped-working/ https://forum.parallels.com/threads...k-config-suddenly-has-self-assigned-ip.19407/ I have found what a workaround using the UI avoiding the need to delete things as SU, which is to open up the global networking preferences for Parallels (Parallels Desktop Menu->Preferences->Network) and toggling the 'Enable IPv4 DHCP' and 'Enable IPv6 DHCP' options both off, and then back on again. Users however really shouldn't have to struggle with an issue like this. I do wonder if it's something to do with the use of VPNs on host operating systems, or switching networks (in the case of a laptop): using a shared network does seem to be more fragile when in such circumstances, but I haven't investigated this, and could just be paranoia at this point.
