Isolate XP virtual PC

I have a user with an old XP box that I virtualized. It is running on Server 2012 Hyper-V. It has a frontend program that talks to an old Server 2003 box that I virtualized long time ago also on 2012 Hyper-V, tho it is a different host. Before I virtualized the PC the user would RDP to it, run her program that touches the server VM and do what she needed. She is the only user that needs access to the frontend virtual PC or the server (tho she never accesses the server directly).

Since the box was XP I hoped that I could use some combo of Private and/or Internal network setup in Hyper-V switch manager to keep the XP from being exposed to the internet after MS retires it.

Not sure how to do that, till now all my virtual NICs have be external only.

Create a virtual NIC on both the 2003 box and the XP box and assign them to their own virtual switch.  After that, just put both of the virtual boxes on a subnet that only they can talk over.  So you'd have two NICs per box at that point.

instead of having 2 nics use a vlan instead.

fyi private is from vm to host,
internal is host vms to host vms and host (all on same computer)

So private is out, and I guess internal is too since she needs to remote from her current PC to the XP VM and use that to access data on a Server 2003 VM.

How do I do a VLAN, never tried that before.
