    Testing environment, OSX+Parallels+Xampp = HOW?

    Hi, My name is Phil
    Please excuse my ignorance in the next few questions...

    I'm in the process of configuring
    a XAMPP testing type system:
    iMac Snow Leopard + Parallels
    with 2xWinXP(ie6 & ie7) and 1xWin7(ie8)

    I want 1 single folder on Snow Leopard & have the
    other OS's/Servers to share that folder.
    I think what I want might be a virtual intranet if such a thing exists.

    Does anyone have any simple
    clear instructions on how to do this?


    So far I done:

    1. Installed Xampp on OSX using
    http://localhost/~myusername/
    as the general site files folder

    2. Installed Parallels(with the 3 windows os' & ie browsers installed)

    3. In System Preferences>Sharing>'Web Sharing'
    set to disabled to not create conflicts

    Do I need to install Xampp on the
    other Windows OS's also? if yes how to config?


    As I have a slow 3g net connection speed
    I'd rather not use a net connection for testing

    Is there a networking work around this?

    Kind regards
    Phil
