FYI - If hosting data and it's being mapped back via its IP rather than host-name, be sure to set the IP as a static outside of DHCP scope, or assign it via DHCP reservation. Consult your router/firewall documentation for further details.

that was actually easy, been doing that for a long time. What I'm stuck on is I'm new to VM Machines, and can't figure out how to do it with that.

@mac_angel - If you're trying to share out files from a VM and access it from another physical computer on the same network, most likely your issue is that VM's private IP is being NATed from the host. Be sure to change the VM NIC settings to "bridged" mode so that it's on the same subnet as the rest of your LAN.
