Virtual PC 6 and internet configuration - Mac Applications & Software

    Default Virtual PC 6 and internet configuration

    Hi,

    I've just installed VPC 6 on a 17" iMac running 10.2.6. This mac is
    connected to an Airport using an ethernet cable and the LAN port, with
    a separate Powerbook connected to the Airport through wireless. In
    turn, the Airport is connected to the internet with SBC DSL. I'd like
    to configure this for internet use through Win 2K on VPC but have been
    afraid to do it without knowing what I'm doing for fear of harming my
    Airport/internet settings on my Macs. I also plan to install VPC on
    the Powerbook but wanted to get it right on one before messing with
    the other. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    TIA,

    Michael

    I don't think you need to be afraid of that. You just need to enable
    internet (virtual switch) in VPC in the settings or preferences settings
    for your Windows system of choice.

    I do not remember exactly what I did, but I found the information in a
    FAQ on: <http://support.microsoft.com/?pr=vpcmac>.
    You can also try <news:microsoft.public.mac.otherproducts>,
    which I do not have on my server, but Google has it.

    Do nothing. Since your iMac is already on the internet when you start
    VPC, then Windows will be also.

    Thanks to both Pieter and Ron. You've helped me overcome my fear of
    Windoze (at least in this instance!)

    I agree. There is no problem sharing the Mac internet connection with
    VPC. But I have dabbled with the VPC settings without upsetting the Mac
    ones: there is no need to do so however.
