I have Windows XP running in a virtual machine (VMWare Player) on my Windows 7 PC (host). I have MSSQL Server 2008 running on the host.
I would like an application running in the virtual machine to access the MSSQL databases running outside the virtual machine. This would be through an ODBC connection on the XP virtual machine, referencing a SQL database outside the virtual machine.
I thought I read that there is a way to do this through "tunneling", and that there is some software available to simplify the tunneling.
Is this true? Any suggestions regarding tunneling and MSSQL Server?
