I have a debian dedicated server with a VirtualBox VM with Windows 7 running on it. I only have 1 IP address. I want to connect to the VM using remote desktop and I'd prefer to not use VRDP. I figured some sort of port forwarding on the dedicated server might do the job but I have been unable to find how.

Does anyone know?

Here is a great article about networking in Virtual Box. Since you are saying that you only have one IP address that you want facing out of your physical then you need to setup Port-Forwarding with NAT Networking.
