Creating Virtual Network|
Virtual Networks serve as binding interfaces between the virtual network adapters inside Containers and the physical/VLAN adapters on the Hardware Node, which allows you to connect the Containers to different Ethernet and VLAN networks. To create a new Virtual Network in Parallels Management Console, do the following:
1 Right-click the needed Hardware Node, and choose Network Configuration > Configure Virtual Networks.
2 In the Virtual Networks window, click the Add button.
3 In the displayed window:
? Specify an arbitrary name for the Virtual Network in the Name field. This name will be used to distinguish the given Virtual Network form the other Virtual Networks on the Hardware Node.
? Provide the Virtual Network description, if necessary, in the Description field. 4 Click OK.
After a while, the newly created Virtual Network will be shown in the Networks table on the Virtual Networks screen.
You can also create new 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.
