    I installed Parallels with CentOS (copy of RedHat Enterprise). I installed a web server on the Linux VM. How do I view the web server from OSX? I can't seem to get the networking settings correct. Does anyone know how to do this?

    In your VM configuration.. make sure the networking is set to Bridged mode.

    If your CentOS installation is set up for DHCP (and you have a DHCP server, such as a router), it should obtain an address within the same subnet as your host system.

    Alternatively, you can configure a static IP on your CentOS installation that is within the same subnet as your host system. That's how I have my VM's configured.. that way I always know the IP.
