Can I run CPN Tools on my Mac/Linux?

Can I run CPN Tools on my Mac/Linux?

With the advent of Intel-powered Macs, virtualization solutions exist for running Windows in a virtual machine under Mac OS X 10.4 and newer on Intel Macs.

The way I use is to run CPN Tools under Windows under either Parallels Desktop (www.parallels.com) or VMWare Fusion (www.vmware.com). You may also […]
