    1. Uninstalled and then reinstalled parallels for my and my MacBook Pro.
    2. Installed a fresh OSX Monterey.
    3. Did not change Network config, so should be on SHARED networking. (in a hotel, and can not do bridged for these VM's)
    4. Guest OS gets vended a proper private Ip from what I assume is the DHCP scope (not place to edit this, see this, change this, or modify this. this is NOT the same scope as specified in Parallels prefs)
    5. I suspect some NIC instance inside of my root Mac OSX got deleted that was needed (was trying to troubleshoot today, and likely removed it from the root Mac OSX config, hence why i uninstalled/reinstalled to try to get whatever was needed reinstalled by parallels).
    6. See attached pic for some info on the guest OS that might help. ANY IDEAS?

    That does not apply @Asish@Parallels. I am on M1, there is no VM configuration option with M1 MacOS guest VM's. There is basically nothing, other than START, REMOVE, and SHOW IN FINDER.

    Hello, please try to create another Mac OS Monterey VM and check if the configuration option is there. Please check if you are running the latest build of Parallels Desktop.

    I am curious, have you ran parallels on an M1 Mac?

    Everyone on my entire team, and from what I can tell based on the Googles, and your own KB articles, everyone else that runs Parallels on an Apple Silicone based Mac has very very limited functionality. Basically, you can change your networking by creating a config.ini file, and you can set it to shared, but you have ZERO control over that shared network ip range, or direct, you can right click delete, right click show in finder, and right lick start/stop. That's it. No drag and drop, no copy paste, no snapshots, no configure, etc.

    Is there is a posted roadmap/timeline for when this basic functionality might become available?

    Also, for the record, it's still 100% broken for me. If I configure the config.ini to be hardware type 1 (shared) I get an error when even trying to ping the alloted gateway Ip of 192.168.54.1
    [Hardware]
    Network.Type = 1

    It's fairly clear that there is a configuration for this shared network that is corrupted or that needs to be configured, but there is zero documentation as to where this is handled, or how to manipulate or modify it. If for instance my internal IP address range in my house was also 192.168.64.0/24 how would I change this DHCP range to something else?

    Hello, Please check this KB article: https://kb.parallels.com/4948 under DHCP.
    You can refer to this link: https://download.parallels.com/desktop/v12/docs/en_US/Parallels Desktop User's Guide/33341.htm to make the necessary changes to the settings of the Parallels DHCP servers for IPv4 and IPv6.
    Note: Shared network settings are available in Parallels Desktop for Mac Pro Edition only.
