You have 3 options:

Use bridged networking - allows you to use another NIC on your server, you can have another IP address set to it and can be different to your local network.

Use NAT - get access of your local IP address's recources, like internet.

Use host-only - The Virtual machines will communicate, they cannot see your host/network
