Powermac: 1 ethernet for Virtual PC, the other for the Mac, at the same time

Posted on 2006-05-10

I have a Powermac G5 Quad, which has 2 ethernet ports.  I have Virtual PC v7.  I have
2 different internet connections, each with it's own Linksys router.

What I'm wanting to do is have the Mac on one IP, and VPC on the other.  Is this possible,
to the point where both connections are active and enabled at the same time...could
both the Mac and VPC be doing their own internet stuff on their own net connections.

What I've done so far:  switched to "Virtual Switch Networking" on the PC Settings of
VPC.  Both ethernet connections are plugged in, the Mac has connectivity.  VPC does
not.  I've looked thru the help stuff, but I just can't seem to get it.

Looking for step-by-step instructions, if this is possible.

    This is the way that I have mine setup:

    Virtual Switch Networking in the VPC PC Settings.
    Plug in both connections.
    Setup the connection that you want for Mac OS X in the Network CP.
    Start your VPC OS.
    Configure your VPC OS Network Settings for the appropriate adapter.
    Should now have both configured and working.

    Hope that helps some.
