How do I connect to NAS running XP under emulator in OS X?
Posted on 2008-10-13
I am running XP under VMWare Fusion inside OS X 10.5, and have a problem connecting to a networked USB hub and HD. I have a Belkin network USB Hub (F5L009) with an attached USB HD on my network. On my XP machine I can see the network USB hub and HD just fine, and can connect to the HD. On the Apple machine, when running OS X, I can likewise see the USB hub and HD just fine, and can connect. However, when I run XP inside the VMWare emulator I can see the USB hub, but I can't connect to the HD. The Belkin SW inside the emulated XP knows the MAC address of the hub and also it's IP address. I can launch a browser inside the emulated XP and the USB hub IP address brings up the hub system information page, showing MAC address, IP address, etc.
Any idea why the emulated XP won't connect to the HD?
