    Configuring a Win 7 Parallels enviroment so it can be pinged?

    I'm not sure where to put this so thought the Mac area would be best as people on here may have a better understanding of the package in question.

    To outline the issue briefly, two schools have decided to get iMacs for their SLT and Office staff. These devices are running Parallels with Windows 7 for SIMS related software. SIMS .net Summer has been installed manually in the Win 7 environment, however the Schools are now fully SOLUS3 and the SIMS Autumn upgrade is going out on Wednesday. Also, the school want Discover installing. Obviously to receive the Autumn upgrade on these devices, and to get Discover installed, the Win 7 parallel environments need to be added to SOLUS3.

    For some reason though, the Win 7 environments cannot be contacted on the network from the server. They appear to be set up in AD and DNS but they cannot be pinged by hostname or by IP address, yet the Win 7 parallel environments can access the network shares, log into SIMS etc etc. Everything seems fine in the Win 7 environment so it must be something to do with the iMac and the way the Win 7 environment is sharing it's network connection. However having very little Mac experience, I've no idea what to check out first.

    Any suggestions gratefully received!

    Try setting the network card setting to bridged ethernet rather than shared
