I have another Windows 7 laptop and I want to try IGMP protocols using multicasting. I figure it's not working because my OS X has IP and the Windows 7 laptop, but the virtual Windows on OS X has 10.xx.xx.xx.

So, which type of network should I use?

  • Shared
  • Bridge
    • Default adapter
    • Ethernet
    • AirPort
    • VNIC0
    • VNIC1
    • host-only

I'm using Windows 7 in Parallels on OS X 10.6.7.

I was using AirPort in OS X for establishing my local network connection, so I selected Bridge » AirPort.
