    Hi all.
    Im running parallels on my mac book pro where i have a ubuntu OS installed. My problem is that i cannot get my ubuntu OS to see the physical NIC (network card). I read somewhere that i need to bridge the connection from the Mac OS to the virtual OS, but how do i do so? Or is their another way?

    Thanks on advance.

    Not really sure how to do it for Parallells (have never used it before), but on VMWare just go into the default settings for the image (they can be accessed through the VMWare settings and the image library) and set the network connection to bridged (there are several to choose from by default).
