Running virtual image on VMware workstation

I have a server that I am running on my laptop(virtual). I want to be able to connect to this image from my physical laptop.

How can I configure to allow my physical device to see the virtual image. I have tried setting up a bridge etc. Do I need to setup static up address on both or a virtual switch?

Looking for easiest way.

The question is vague. What is on the VM that the actual physical computer that its running need to see? Have you tried sharing the drive (everyone-read access) out?

Are you trying to copy information from the VM to the physical?

I'm having trouble understanding the issue.

It's a server running 2012. It has sql server running on it and an ERP application.

I managed to do this years ago  to setup environment on my laptop. Looking to have the server running as virtual server on laptop so that I can write client code on my laptop using visual studio.

Reason for doing this is I fly between UK, Canada, us and Mexico and want environment setup so I can work when flying when doing development work.
try assigning the VM to be on the same subnet as the laptop. I had VMWKS at one time, but no longer have it installed (space constraints).
