I installed Snow Leopard server as a VM in Parallels8 on my MacBook Pro running Mountain Lion, then successfully installed Freehand MX.
So far so good, but:
• drag and drop between OSX server and Mountain Lion won't work in either direction
• I can mount OSX server in Mountain Lion finder, but can't mount Mountain Lion in OSX server
• copy and paste works from FH to Illustrator CS6 though complex paths – eg punch out – don't render correctly
I've no previous experience setting up an OSX server, so may not have configured it fully. But it seems like the fact it's running in a VM severely limits its (file) server functionality.
I've searched on Parallels website/forum and elsewhere for more info without success. Does anyone know how to enable file swapping between the VM server and Mountain Lion?
