How do I configure Parallels Desktop for Mac to work with the Barracuda Backup Service?

To configure your Barracuda Appliance to work with Parallels Desktop for Mac, you will need to use custom IP settings that allow the backup appliance to access our agent installed on the server.

We will have to enable something known as Bridged Networking, which uses your network adapter. You should choose this mode if you want to access the virtual machine from the external network. Please keep in mind that your network configuration should allow using DHCP to assign IP address for the virtual machine, or you should obtain a static IP for the VM and set it in the guest OS.

To configure Windows to work in the Bridged Ethernet mode:

1. Do one of the following:
* Click the Parallels icon in the menu bar, press and hold the Option (Alt) key and choose Configure.

* If the Parallels Desktop menu bar is visible at the top of the screen, choose Virtual Machine Configure.
2. Click Hardware and then click Network.
3. In the Network pane, make sure that the Connected option is selected.
4. Select the appropriate network adapter from the list. To connect the virtual machine's adapter to the active network adapter of your Mac, choose Default Adapter.

Note: In the MAC address field, you can change the MAC address currently assigned to Windows. MAC addresses are automatically generated when you first set up Windows. However, you can modify the default MAC address by typing another value in the MAC address field or clicking the Generate button. When entering a new MAC address, make sure that it is unique within your network.

Additional Notes:
For the information about troubleshooting networking problems, refer to the Parallels knowledge base
