I am starting my dissertation for a masters in advanced software engineering and I have chosen to have make use of some .net3.0 technologies such as WWF, WCF etc. I have a macbook pro with vista installed via bootcamp. I need to be able to have the web services running and also have access to osx for developing other layers. Obviously bootcamp is of no use as it's either vista or osx. Can parallels or vmfusion do what I need? If I'm running vista using one of these methods, can I access a web service running in vista from mac osx? Does windows get it's own ip address? or is this accessed through ports? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
