Port forward question in Virtual machine

Hello,

I am kinda new to these forums and i would really need help.
Here is my problem:

I am behind router and i get local ip like "192.168.1.x"

When i power up virtual machine (VM Ware) example win server 2008, in there i get local ip like 192.168.60.xxx.. To make my ports reachable from internet example simple ftp server(21) for which local ip i need to forward port "21".. The main pc one or the virtual machine's ip ?

Regards

Sounds like your VM is set to use NAT or something else. You don't want to use NAT on the VM if you are going to port forward. Instead, modify the settings of your VM and set it to bridged. You will then get a 192.168.1.x address on the VM and you would port forward to that address.
