Are you asking how you could create a private network that only connects the two VM's?

Is this a separate virtual network from one that would allow the VM's to communicate with the rest of the network & / or the internet?

If so, just create a new virtual network that the host server doesn't share then add a second network adapter to each VM that connects to that virtual network.  When you create a virtual network there's a check box for whether or not the host operating system is allowed to share that virtual network.  If you don't check it then the host OS won't be able to access that virtual network.

Is this what you're asking?  If not, can you give more details?

Do you want only both Windows 7 ( VM's ) need to communicate with each other,Then select the network card type of the vm's as private.Which only allow to communicate between the VM's on the same host.
