Route Internet traffic to VM on a single wireless connection

imitchie asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I am intending to set up a standalone "DMZ" machine (a laptop) with its own wireless broadband modem. The modem is via USB and the laptop get a single IP to the outside world (just like the old 56kbps modem days with no routers).  With DSL+router, I know I can set the VM to use bridged networking, and set up on the router to direct port 80 traffic to the VM's internal IP.

How do I get port 80 traffic to the VM? I prefer VMWare but if the only way is via Virtual Server 2005, that's ok as well.
