Host-only network does not work with VLAN tag

APPLIES TO:
  • Parallels Desktop 10 for Mac
  • Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac

Symptoms

  • I use several Linux/FreeBSD virtual machines. Their network adapters are configured in the host-only mode. I Have added VLAN tag on the guest interface.

  • When I try to ping between virtual machines I get "host unreachable" output.

  • If I remove the VLAN tags from the interfaces and try to ping, it works perfect.

Cause

  • VLAN hardware acceleration is not supported by e1000 adapter.

Resolution

Switch to Virtio adapter:

Open virtual machine configuration > switch to Hardware tab > in the left pane choose Network adapter > in the right pane change NIC Type to Virtio network adapter:
