Windows 7: Making the network in the virtual machine work

Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit
Making the network in the virtual machine work


I have created a virtual machine with a Red Hat Linux 6 OS in it. My host machine has a Windows 7 OS.
I have assigned a static ip address to my Windows host machine.

How do I configure the network settings for the Virtual Machine so that it will be able to access the network? I want to test samba access from the Windows host and from other machines to the VM. For this, I need the network access.

Thanks in advance.
