I am trying to play a network game of Age of Empires between an instance on my PC and another running in Parallels on my Mac, but I cannot get the two to see each other. I know a little bit about networks but I am no genius. Can anyone provide me with any assistance at all?

Many thanks

I found this posted in Parallels forums:
To resolve those connectivity issues in Parallels 3.0 under Leopard I switched my network adapter in Parallels from "Shared Networking" to "Ethernet adapter" or "Airport/Wireless adapter" (based upon you networking setup). That resolved connectivity and printing issues for me.

Age of empires is a very good game, especially for network gaming!
Which one are you playing I, II or III? (just wondering)
I have also encountered some connectivity problems in new Parallels. They are easily resolved by the means stated above

AoE II and the fix above works perfectly.
