I have a Virual Machine running in VMware Workstation on my laptop.

The VM is running Windows Server 2008. It has an IIS server running on it.

I would like to be able to remove the internet connection from the virutal machine but continue to use the internet on my laptop. I would also like to be able to hit the webserver on the vm.

Any suggestions on how to do this?
