Hi

Thank you
Thanks for the tips, my installation is ok but the network is not working this with the following messages.

My card is a RTL 8139, it installed and running on Windows

Hi,

I understand you have a real realtek 8139 network card in your computer?
PearPC will not use that. It will use a TAP device network adapter you can install as part of the OPENVPN package and pretent to use a fake realtek 8139 in OSX.

http://openvpn.net/release/openvpn-2.0.9-install.exe

Please take care to only install the tap device during installation.

The error you reported should then be history. Further configuration should be done: you should use Internet Connection Sharing with the TAP device on your real network card in Windows and you should configure Mac OSX networking, but first thing first.

Best,

In a terminal window, you can try to stop and start your connection in OSX:
give these three commands:

sudo ifconfig en0 down (you have to enter your administrator password after this)
sudo ifconfig en0 up
sudo route add default 192.168.0.1 (this should be your router ip address)

How do I configure Internet Connection Sharing in Windows? I have searched both Control Panel and the Start Menu, but all that comes up is "Diagnose Internet Connection problems". Also, In my virtual Mac, it does not connect to the Internet at all (I think the virtual Mac can't see the adapter?) The virtual Mac OS X version is Mac OS X 10.2.

Hi,

I don know how far you already got in getting networking going in 10.2

10.2 requires that you install the 3com network card driver. You can find it on an iso here:
http://pearpc.sourceforge.net/downloads ... sw-pkg.iso

I'm not sure whether ICS will work to get the network going. In any case, you first need to install the OpenVPN tap driver. Please make sure to only install the tap driver, not all the rest of OpenVPN.
In the pearpc config file, you then need to enable the 3com card (installed=1).

ICS in windows 10 is done through the properties of the network card itself:
Right click the start button, click network connections. Click Network and Sharing Center.
Then click Change Adapter settings. You will then find the network connections your PC uses. Right click the local area connection and select Properties. Then at the Sharing tab, select "Allow other....." and select the tap device to share the connection.

Windows 7 follows the same path, except you have to get to the network connections through the control panel.

Hello Cat_7,

your had written:

Then click Change Adapter settings. You will then find the network connections your PC uses. Right click the local area connection and select Properties. Then at the Sharing tab, select "Allow other....." and select the tap device to share the connection.

Windows 7 follows the same path, except you have to get to the network connections through the control panel
I have Windows 7 64 bit.
I installed the newest Version of TAP device network adapter and only installed the Adapter as you sad.
If I go to "System" and look for the installed Diveces, I can see the Network TAP Card.

There is LAN1 and LAN2 Connects.
LAN1 is the one I use and LAN2 the one for TAP.
LAN2 is shown as not connected, because it is not connected to the Cable.

Please give me a Advise to solve the Problem so I can go on.

Regards, maclinux
