RDP from Microsoft virtual PC, to the virtual PC Host server

We use a terminal server computer, in our small office, running Server 2003. I recently installed Microsoft Virtual Server on this PC. Then, I created a virtual XPP computer. In the virtual computer, I changed the RDP listening port, and now am able to RDP directly to the virtual PC. I would like to be able to RDP from the virtual PC, back to the terminal server computer (the one that is actually hosting the virtual PC). When I try, it connects, but fails quickly. I assume it is failing because the virtual PC is using the same NIC to go out, and come back in to the terminal server, so the switch sees the loop, and locks up. If I reset the switch, all is well for a few minutes, then it happens again. Any help will be greatly appreciated...

Just had a thought...Maybe if I put a second NIC in the server, and RDP from the virtual PC that is bound to the first nic, to the ip I assign the second NIC, the switch would not lock up. Any thoughts?
