Create Route between 2 subnets


Run CMD as Admin

route ADD -P destination_network MASK subnet_mask  gateway_ip metric_cost

so:
If your your gateway is 192.168.2.1

Route ADD -P 192.168.1.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 192.168.2.1
I would suggest that Bridged mode is much simpler
Try defining your IP scopes for the targeted systems.
Another approach is create another Virtual switch and assign second virtual NIC to XP machine
