So there is a web appliance running on my Mac localhost. I want to check how it looks in Internet Explorer. I have Parallels Desktop 12 running Windows 10 with installed Parallels tools.

However, if I run IE in Coherence, it still cannot load localhost. I tried to set up IP of my mac to (because I know my router gives IP in this range) and then accessing from parallels IE

While this worked, I would like to know if there is better process to do that

  • localhost is the machine you are running on so in this case it is theBVM the MacOS is a different machine so you use an assigned IP address as you have done – user151019 Jan 3 '17 at 12:20
