Previewing localhost:3000 in IE6 in Parallels

How do I view localhost:3000 in Internet Explorer 6 in Parallels? I
found instructions for Tiger, but nothing for Leopard. Any advice?

Hi,

How do I view localhost:3000 in Internet Explorer 6 in Parallels? I

I'm not using Mac, but assumed that you start your application on Mac
OS, and want to test it from XP/Vista in virtual machine, you have to
specify different host than "localhost" from there. Your virtual
machine will probably see your Mac OS X operating system running on
different IP. To check this, one way is to open command line in
Windows in virtual machine and type:

C:> route print

that will give you idea on what is IP You need to specify in URL
instead of "localhost".
Above instructions apply to Linux / Virtualbox, but for other virtual
machines this must work similiar.

Hope this helps,
H.

You need to enter the ip of your Mac instead of localhost. Check the
System Preference and Network.

Thanks, all. That did the trick.
