Unable to perform DNS requests over TCP in Shared network

8 users found this article helpful


DNS requests are rejected when performing the query over TCP in Shared network mode in Windows virtual machine.


DNS requests over TCP in Shared network feature is supported only in Parallels Desktop Pro and Business Editions.

Such functionality is not supported in Parallels Desktop Standard Edition.


For Parallels Desktop Standard Edition please apply one of the following workarounds:

  1. Change the network type from Shared to Bridged by going to Windows virtual machine's configuration > Hardware > Network > Source.
  2. Assign DNS server manually in Windows network settings.
