InformationParallels Desktop requires access to the following URLs:
- Parallels Desktop.app - HTTP and HTTPS connections to the download.parallels.com and update.parallels.com URLs
- Parallels Service.app – HTTP and HTTPS connections to the download.parallels.com and update.parallels.com URLs
Thus, it might be necessary to enable access in Firewall to the following services:
Macintosh HD/Library/Parallels/Parallels Service.app
Macintosh HD/Applications/Parallels Desktop.app
Please note that name 'Macintosh HD' may vary.
Note: Parallels Desktop preferences checkbox “check for updates” disables all queries for the product updates, but does not affect product key activation verification. Therefore you may see periodic Parallels Dispatcher service accesses to the parallels.com URL.
