If you have a reasonably beefy PC and plenty of RAM (32GB or more), the easiest/cheapest way to do this is VirtualMachines.

WindowsServer and a couple of client systems, all virtualized inside your physical hardware, talking to each other.

This is my system, running 4x VMs

Linux
Win 10

I could if I wanted, and have in the past.
That WindowsServer is a full installation. Does everything you could do on actual hardware.

I used to do a LOT of development that way.
Server and a couple of clients.
