I have the following, totally bizarre, please don't ask, setup:
- AirPort router
- iBook running Virtual PC connected to AirPort
- MacBook running RDC connected to AirPort
- A Windows XP VM running on Virtual PC with NAT network settings.
I want to access the Windows VM via RDC.
Apparently, latest Virtual PC on latest Mac OS X cannot use Virtual Switch with AirPort, just with ethernet, so the Windows VM is running on NAT. So it's not directly connected to AirPort, hence, not on the same network as the MacBook.
Can I use SSH port forwarding to somehow make the VM on the iBook accessible to the MacBook? What the magic line would be?
The accepted answer does not work for the very specific situation described here, see my answer for details. However, as a general solution involving other virtualization software, it works great.
