  1. Direct Internet connection with static IP (upd: connected directly to the ISP without any routers).

  2. Win Web Server (Win 2008 R2).

  3. VirtualBox with guest OS Linux Debian.

  4. Web-server on Debian.

  • Put virtual box in bridge mode.
  • Give your Debian guest an IP address within your LAN.
  • Have whatever device holds the static IP address port forward port 80 to the IP address of the Debian guest,


Now you have clarified the situation you should take a look at the Network settings. If you have NAT enabled then there is a Port Forwarding button which allows you to configure this and even configures the windows fire wall.

"Direct Internet connection with static IP" as i have understand it , he has the Win Server connected directly to the ISP with the static IP. – Hanan N. Dec 18 '11 at 19:09
If your assumption is correct then that is the device that will have to do the port forwarding. – Iain Dec 18 '11 at 19:18
I mean, the Win Server connected directly to the ISP with the static IP (colocation in Data Center). – scazy Dec 19 '11 at 3:56
Yes. I think, NAT is what I need. Thanks a lot. – scazy Dec 19 '11 at 10:16
