You would need to install a Web Server on your VM, and Port Forward Port 80 on your router.

The Web Server (IIS) is installed and site  is using port 80 and i added port 80 in firewall exceptions of vm machine but still i can't access it from remote server . I can access the vm site by localhost or by IP address but no luck in accessing it remotely even by port forwarding, looks like something is blocking it..
