    I want to forward the port 16881 from inside OS X (10.5.2) to my Parallels boot camp virtual machine. The router is correctly forwarded and it works fine when I am in Windows(XP) via Boot Camp, but I don't know how get Leopard to forward the port. I tried using WaterRoof, but I could not seem to get the options to work just right. Any ideas on how to do this?

    set Parallels' network to "Bridged" in the configuration preferences, then while in windows type "ipconfig /all" in command prompt to get your IP and MAC address (Physical Address). in your router forward port 16881 to that IP address and then manually reserve that IP address to the MAC address using the router or in Windows.
