Parallels setup questions

Chris de Voogd
Chris de Voogd Member ✭✭
I installed Parallels15/ Windows 10 on a MacMini 2018 but my Flex6600 (v3.1.12) app. will not open.
it seems the radio is seeing ( using?) a complete different network then the Mac. With Bootcamp everything worked fine before.
Any suggestions?

    Here is a screenshot of my settings.   Windows on the left, Parallels on the right.  Perhaps this will help you get set up the your LAN connection.

    Alan,
    thanks, but I don’t see the LAN connections adresses for Parallels, only for Windows.

    Chris.

    There are separate IP network card addresses; one for the Mac (two if you count one for WIFI and one for ethernet) and another network card IP address for the Windows machine.  Parallels do not have a network card IP address of its own.  

    Parallels do set the MAC address, which you can change under the advanced network connections.

    Alan,
    Thanks, I will try  to play with them and change them.
    My network IP for the Mac is 192.168.188.23 and is part of the same network in my home.
    The network IP showing on the Windows machine (parallels) is 10.211.55.3
    and so a complete different network to my opinion.

    You need to set Parallels to bridge mode so it has the same ip subnet as the radio.

    In the Parallels15-Window 10 Configuration, under network, I chose as source the same source used by the Mac (in my case WiFi-2). This way you get an IP address for Windows 10 on the 192.168.1. local subnet (Using the recommended shared resources option I got a 10. something address. ) 73 de Juan, NA0B
