I am running a Debian virtual Machine (Sue) on VMWare, which has one virtual machine inside

it (called Billy - I can enter it with (vzctl enter 100) ).

I want to be able to access the internet on Billy via Sue (I have set some restrictions on Sue with iptables, and I want to at the same time I want to check the traffic between Billy and the internet).

How do I do this ? Should I use a bridge ? Or IP Forwarding? Thank you!
