can I use VPN between real PC and virtual portable-OS?


OK, trying to figure out how I can have communication, etc
between my real PC and my virtual playthings?
Both have dhcp ready at loading, but I also think there on the same IP address too

so, how to setup some kind of network between real PC and virtual one?
Is VPN what I want?
I have a linksys 4 port router.
thanks

well there's nothing "interesting" about a virtual PC in terms of this, if there was it wouldn't be a valid systgem to use. But whilst it's certainly possible to do this, you've not said anythign abuot your setup to know why you think you need a VPN in the first place. That would usually only be if this was across the internet... is it?? more info please.
