10.4: Share an EVDO connection with Parallels Desktop Network
For those of you with EVDO cards and an Intel-powered Mac, you may be interested in reading this very detailed article over at EVDOinfo.com. It explains how to set up your Mac such that Parallels Desktop can use the EVDO connection to access the internet. There's also an associated forums thread with a few more notes.

I don't have an EVDO card yet, but I've bookmarked the page for future reference. If someone has one and can confirm the procedure, please post a comment.

Yow! That's a lot of configuration. The latest stable version of Parallels has a new networking mode called "shared networking". Just use that and your all set, without all the work on the EVDO page.

I have the latest stable build (1970, November 1, 2006) with the shared networking option, but I haven't been able to get that to work with my Verizon V640 card. If anyone has any tips for getting that to work, I'd love hearing them...

Not sure why, but "en2" and "en3" don't get added to every config. I think you have to start Parallels while the "NationalAccess - BroadbandAccess" Location is configured. If en2 and en3 aren't there, it won't work.

But mine's working just fine now.

It just worked for me. I set the VM to shared networking, and used the in-build Apple drivers, not the Verizon drivers. Started my session under OS X, then started the VM. Make sure your VM is set to use the 'default" adapter and you have no other adapters "live" (turn off Airport, even if not connected).
