I think you can also create a new virtual bridge on your host thats
bound to a vlan of your physical interface then you can bind the
vitrual interface of the VM to the virtual bridge of the host.
It's not a perfect solution, but I dont know your networking
environemnt ! Prefer something with a DMZ and port forwarding
configured on your router.
