I am running an xp machine with a static ip, I have vmware running a linux box to run a wiki.  I have the wiki working on the intranet, IE if I open a browser window I can get to it from the machine the vm instance is hosted on, but I want to make it so I can use the static ip of the hosting machine to enable outside users to connect to the webpage hosted on the vmware machine.

Why not assign the VM a static IP address and forward the ports there?

Well the point here isn't to get around the lack of a web server (though that is admittingly also part of the idea) the point here is to attempt to get around only having one static ip and wanting it for the hosting machine of the vm.

I have one static ip on the machine hosting the vmware instance.  I want to use the vmware instance to host a web page because the hosting machine is using xp and I want to use linux to actually run the page.  There is only one static ip and it must be the host machine, I want to know if I can't have the host machine foward http packets to the vm's ip

Well, you would have to have the VMware network configured as NAT.

Okay, I can do that, how would I make the windows hosting machine direct an outside http request to the vmware instance after doing that?
