How to access W2K3 server on MS Virtual PC from my local machine

I have set up a Windows 2003 server on virtual PC and have given it an address

I have two XP virtual machines (called XP1 and XP2) with addresses and 152. They are able to connect to the W2K3 server without any problems.

I now need to connect my real machine to the W2K3 server. How do I do it? When I ping, I get a request time out. I have tried assigning and same subnet to my local machine but to no avail.

Normaly if they are on the same network and subnet mask they will talk to each other.
Se if your VM have DHCP and gateway define for your virtual nicĀ“s.
And let me now.

Found out that under Edit, Settings, Networking in Virtual PC, the network adapter for the VM was using the wireless adapter. I then changed it and chose the VM network adapter and it worked!
