    I am having issues with getting networking to work in Ubuntu 6.06. I am using the latest Parallels Build, RC2. I have a MacBook Pro, 2.16 Ghz, 1 gig, 120 gig HD. The issue I am having is the network will not get an IP address. When I do ifconfig, the eth0 dosn't even show and ip address, it only has an ipv6 address.

    Parallels is set on bridged ethernet, set to default adapter. Using some random mac too. Any ideas? BTW, It works on Windows XP and Vista.

    Bridged networking in Ubuntu works fine for me - but it did get confused at one point after a vm config change. The file:


    ...maps network hardware (M.A.C.) addresses to ethernet interface numbers, and in my case it had mapped eth0 to an old M.A.C. address, so the new one was showing up as eth1 and not getting set up properly.

    ifconfig -a

    ...and see if the interface shows up as eth1 or eth2 If so, note the "HWAddr" field then edit /etc/iftab accordingly. Actually, just moving /etc/iftab out of the way and rebooting will probably do it.
