I have a VPN connection on my Hyper-V Host machine. How can I share that VPN with a Hyper-V Guest VM?

I had hoped that just sharing my LAN connection as the Virtual Network would do it, but clearly I was mistaken. Looking at the settings in my Virtual Network, I don't see anything promising.

Is there an easy way to do this?

how many nics are you using, is there one each for management and vm's? – tony roth Apr 5 '12 at 2:45
@tony - I'm using just 1. I have two physical nics available. – gilly3 Apr 5 '12 at 6:31

The easy way is to simply connect to the host's VPN from within the guest as per standard VPN connection settings.
