Connecting Adapter to Virtual Network|
Connecting a physical or VLAN adapter to a Virtual Network allows you to join all Containers included in the Virtual Network to the network, either Ethernet or VLAN, where the corresponding adapter is connected. To join an adapter to a Virtual Network in Parallels Management Console, do the following:
1 Right-click the needed Hardware Node, and choose Network Configuration > Configure Network Adapters.
2 In the Hardware Node Network Configuration window, select the name of the network adapter to be joined to a Virtual Network, and click Edit button.
3 Under Virtual Network, choose on the drop-down menu the Virtual Network to which you want to join the network adapter.
4 Click OK. To disconnect an adapter from the corresponding Virtual Network, perform Steps 1 and 2 above,
and in the Properties window, choose Not connected on the drop-down menu. You can also connect adapters to and disconnect them from Virtual Networks using these tools:
? Parallels Virtual Automation. For more information on this web-based tool, see the Parallels Virtual Automation Administrator's Guide at http://www.parallels.com/products/pva46/resources.
? vznetcfg. Detailed information on this command-line tool is provided in the Parallels Virtuozzo Containers 4.6 Reference Guide.
