Network connecting to Virtual PC when disconnected

Marcas Technorati:

Today I needed to connect via network to a Virtual PC instance that I had locally, but as I was working offline (with no network cable connected) windows disabled my network interface.


Windows IP Configuration

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected

I surfed around and found some help on this article "Keep Your Virtual Machines and Hosts Talking Without a TCP/IP Connection".

Basicly I had to install Microsoft Loopback Adapter in Vista and after that I was able to manually configure my IP's in order to communicate with the VPC instance without beeing connected and without having my network DHCP server :)
