    Hi I want to try my sites in IE with parallels. I use Mamp on my mac to test the page's but I cant see them in IE. I can get to the start screen for mamp in IE but not open my web page's. Anyone know what I have to do?

    Okay I did solve it. I had to login to wordpress (that I use as a cms) and change the url from localhost to my ip number.

    If you don't want to mess with Parallels you can also try IEs4OSX, which allows you to run IE5/6 on your Intel Mac as another application. It requires a couple extra installs, but pretty painless. It has a Beta IE7, but I had trouble with that. I mainly use the IE6 to view my designs and it shows the pages just as craptactally as the real thing on Windows. The screen refreshes in IE6 were a little annoying, but I don't use it to browse, just preview so was a great solution.

    Thanks. IEs4osx works great. And I dont have to mess with parallels, I could only open my page in parallels when I was home and my ip number.

    Edit: My png hack dont work in IEs4osx but they did in parallels.
