There really is no way to 'simulate' an 'external client', on a home router. Your internet connection is coming in one port, and is going through one set of rules. So unless that router is VERY programmable, then the best you can do, as far as I can think of, is to create a routed connection in from another subnet. Of course, the EASIEST way to do what you are trying to do, is just go out and buy an aircard (a usb device that connects to the internet), or, if you can 'share' your phone's internet connection, you can use that as an external connection. And setup your VM to ACTUALLY use an internet connection other than your normal ISP.

I have the VM running but it was part of my workgroup. I changed the workgroup name for the VM but I am still able to access it remote desktop by the machine name which means that very likely the router is using stored info and assigning the VM an IP. I really wanted to isolate it as much as I can from my internal network. I tried assigning the machine an entirely different IP range (192.168.122.x instead of 192.168.1.x) but when I did that it appears that hamachi instantly loses it's tunnel through the firewall. Any suggestions for how to go about making this thing isolated? -- John W.
