Providing externally accessible services within a NAT
environment whether or not you are running separate physical machines or
guest/host VM arrangement is the same.

The machine with the static IP interface providing the NAT has to map the
external IP+port to a local IP+port.

For your 'loge.farest.com.au' domain you have to configure the host O/S
[Windows] to do the mapping.  The VM software that sets up the virtual
LANs may give you this capability, elsewise you have to use the native OS
capability.  In Linux that's probably iptables.  In Windows - don't know.

Yes, I own vmware.
