I have tried Parallels Desktop 6, VMWare Fusion and VirtualBox when trying to run a Virtual Machine with a Bridged network adapter. I simply select the adapter interface (en0) and then press on.
When the VM Loads, I try to load a web page on my mac system and nothing loads, the only way to bring my network back is to restart my system without starting the virtual machine.
The NAT type connection works but I'm looking for a bridged mode as I will be running a server on that Virtual Machine.
It's on a desktop machine, but I have done some tests.
I had tried setting the MAC address of the bridged interface in the VM to the same one of my physical adapter. This still broke my systems connection to the network.
I then tried To run in bridged mode, stopped the VM then used:
ifconfig en0 down ifconfig en0 up
to restart my adapter. This worked and gave my connection back. But when it's done with the VM running nothing works. So I'm kind of lost here.
