Trying Delphi XE2, testing Mac OSX

 I'm trying the Mac stuff with no success, I've followed all instructions:

  • Windows 7 IP is 192.168.2.2
  • Install VirtualBox
  • Install Mac OSX via VirtualBox 
  • Install in Mac the paserver thing from Embarcadero
  • Launch pasever at port 64211
  • VirtualBox guest IP is 192.168.2.69 forwared to 192.168.2.2 port 50000

Ping to remote OS works, but telnet on port 50000 doesn't (neither on port 64211), therefore in Delphi it does not work..., it shows: [PAClient Error] Error: EIdSocketError: Socket Error # 10061

The configuration in VirtualBox:


And the configuration in Delphi:


With Windows Firewall disabled it also does not work, so I'm really lost, somebody has been success with this kind of configuration?

  1. Hola Abel! yo pase por estas mismas penas... aqui vas a encontrar bastante info: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7271317/delphi-xe2-firemonkey-sample-app-not-running-on-a-mac/7369352#7369352 pero la verdad parece casi imposible hacerlo, es un tema de licencias. Corriendo contra una mac mini por ejemplo funciona ok... Sera hasta que alguien encuentre la vuelta.. Veo que para desarrollo muchos hacen la inversa; corren Windows en una VM *desde* la mac. Yo por ahora estoy con las dos maquinas pero voy a tener que hacer algo similar.

  5. Don't use NAT used Bridged networking in your virtualbox setup.
