Pear PC is great, however the networking aspect of it is driving me up the wall. I feel as though I'm so close, yet so far away. Hopefully someone can help me out.
I've followed just about every network guide I could find on the subject, trying ICS, using a proxy, bridging adaptors, etc. Nothing yet has seemed to work.
So now that the intro is out of the way, here's what I have at this point in time:
Host machine is Windows XP Pro SP2
OS X 10.3 running perfectly in Pear PC (config file posted below)
ppc_start_resolution = "1024x768x32"
redraw_interval_msec = 20
key_toggle_mouse_grab = "F12"
key_toggle_full_screen = "Alt+Return"
prom_bootmethod = "auto"
prom_env_bootargs = ""
prom_driver_graphic = "video.x"
page_table_pa = 104857600
cpu_pvr = 0x00088302
pci_ide0_master_installed = 1
pci_ide0_master_image = "3gb.img"
pci_ide0_master_type = "hd"
pci_ide0_slave_installed = 0
pci_ide0_slave_image = ""
pci_ide0_slave_type = "cdrom"
pci_3c90x_installed = 0
pci_3c90x_mac = "de:ad:ca:fe:12:34"
pci_rtl8139_installed = 1
pci_rtl8139_mac = "de:ad:ca:fe:12:35"
pci_usb_installed = 1
nvram_file = "nvram"
Host machine ethernet adaptors configured as follows:
#2 (Win-TAP32, Open VPN 2.0 Beta 2 Version)
OS X adaptor configured as follows (DHCP is not working):
So currently (with the Realtek drivers) I can ping the Win-TAP32 adaptor from within OS X, and see the packets coming in from the request, but there isn't any reply being sent back. I've also attempted to connect through CC Proxy, but nothing. This is about the closest I've come so far to having it up and running.
I've tried re-installing Open VPN, but the problem remains the same. Trying to use DHCP doesn't help at all either. Bridging connections seems to be even worse. ICS just plain won't work (telling me some other machine is using 192.168.0.1 when there isn't).
Have I missed something simple in my configuration, or am I doomed to not have connectivity in the emulator?
Thanks in advance for any help.
