    So I've been scouring the Internet for the fundamentals of virtual networking and it's just a little bit above my comprehension level. Because of this, I thought I'd ask those who are proficient in networking here on BHW for a solution to what I'm trying to accomplish through virtual networking.

    So I have a virtual machine within my Windows OS (It's running on VirtualBox, VM OS is also Windows) and what I want to be able to do is set up the VM as a sever with it's own IP. Specifically, I want, from other computers in my LAN, to be able to access the virtual machine as a distinct entity from my host computer, with a unique IP address.

    Right now, I can access the VM on the host computer as a separate IP address, but not on the LAN as a separate IP address. Is there any way that I can give my VM it's own unique IP on my LAN, or at least forward a port on the host machine directly to the VM?

    I'll provide clarification if needed. Thanks to any and all that are willing to help! My networking skills suck.

    Anything running within VMware with networking on(either wifi or "Ethernet") Should show up as its on device in your LAN with its own local IP. You may have to enable Network Sharing/discovery on the VM(it's a Windows setting in the network tab)
