comment Implement a SOHO server on the limited functionality host (Win Home) using the virtualized Linux server as a guest OS on that host?
well you could probably get the overall setup to act however you want it to; but a lot of that's going to depend on how you have your network setup and how windows home can segment multiple NICs. Even if you can get all the router functions in the guest OS, your host/server will never be behind your router. Which is why I'm still recommending a OTS SOHO router; if you have no budget but an extra machine you can setup a standalone Smoothwall, IPCop, or Untangle system. All of which will be way more secure than your proposed idea.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by that. I'll just say that it's more an issue that networking in virtual box just can't work that way ("Bypassing" the host OS). It's basically limited to "Internal Host" or "Bridged" networking, where internal is just within the host and bridged treats the NIC like a virtual switch so the VM appears like a distinct machine on the network. You can kind of fake bypassing the host os in a dedicated environment and multiple NICs on separate VLANs. But it didn't sound like that's what you wanted and windows home with Virtual Box sure won't do that.
