Maybe it is just me, but I do not think that 10.2 is working with this release. The NIC is never auto-detected when I click on Network. Does 10.2 have the required drivers?

fullscreen works fine, but there are no arch optimizations, which for the first time I've bothered to worry about them.(fullscreen is f5 btw)

Is this new network version working for you guys? I've tried it using the same config file and I can't seem to get it working. Which is wierd because I had networking running with the first version. System Preferences even says I'm connected, but I can't access any websites. :?

Try pinging and stuff. Simply saying you can't get to websites helps no one. What about DNS resolution? Local IP connections? etc, etc.

Complete Configuration that works!

Sorry for double-posting, but I thought, that might be interesting for you:

I was confused, when people throwed parts of their configuration into the discussion. For a long time it didn't work for me. So by now, I got it all working and want to tell others, what I did:

At first: My network consists of a router (IP: and the win-client (IP given by DHCP:

I enabled the ICS (InternetConnectionSharing) for the normal Network-Device (the one with IP:
I installed the TAP-Driver and as Jackalo said, I set up the ip-adress of the TAP-Device as follows:


DNS-Server: (free DNS Server for everyone)
alternative DNS-Server:

Then, after booting into Mac OS X, I found the new Network-Device (the TAP-Device) and configured it like this:

Router/Gateway: (TAP-Device-IP in Windows)

DNS-Server: (Router-IP)

Now, as I said, got it all working.


PS: Don't care so much about the config-files. They're ready made and work, if you just set your .iso-Files and HDs!
