    Hello, I just received my g6 lite from winsunx and I was wondering if I could use my macbook pro to manage it, and, if so, where can I find the appropriate software?
    Thanks

    Yes, you can, if you install parallels (with windows) you can use the g6 lite software provided by g6 themselves.

    But natively there is no Mac OSX Client?

    Correct there is no mac native client, however parallels allows ultra fast emulation of the windows system. As riell has a macbook pro, he is able to run windows seemlessly.

    I have a 12" Powerbook, and I just installed Virtual PC running the guest as as 2000 PC. It works fine. It's pretty fast. If you don't want to use Bootcamp to install Windows on you Macbook then I would recommend this option. It works really well, and will run very fast on your macbook as it runs almost at normal speed on my Powerbook. Good luck.

    Virtual PC doesn't work on Intel-based Macs (like the Macbooks).

    Parallels is not bootcamp, i believe they do not work together (however i may be wrong). however, parallels is much much faster then virtual pc as it uses the intel core to process the windows commands, instead of directly translating them, or somehting along those lines which is total mumbojumbo to me (i'm sure someone will prove me wrong)
