Hi Guys,

I run VM and a windows 7 install on my mac but I do not want it connecting to the internet at any time.

I currently keep it running on its own desktop on mission control but is there anyway I can stop that desktop connecting to the internet?

Im not sure if I can tell windows not to connect of if I can tell that desktop not to connect?

Help!
QUOTE Thanks

You can disable the network adapter for the Windows VM. That will make Windows think that there are no network adapters and thus, it will have no networking capabilities. Consult the documentation for your VM product to see how to do this.
