    I'm currently using internet sharing to allow my parallels virtual machines to share internet access via the airport card. This works fine but interferes with my VPN access because machines inside our company are on a 192.168.2.x network and internet sharing is assigning the same range. On a normal DHCPD I could configure the address range to get around this but I can't see how to do this on my Mac. Anyone got any ideas? :confused:

    That's an interesting one. Even if you edit the DHCP configuration info in NetInfo Manager as described in the man page for bootpd, they reset back to 192.168.2.x as soon as you restart the Internet Connection Sharing.

    I did a bit of digging and came up with this link. Looks like someone's found a solution, but it's not particularly tidy
