Is it possible to setup a VM as a DMZ machine by IP

Howdy all,

The subject pretty much says it all. I was thinking today, since I am limited on my buying power of new hardware, could I set up a VM from say, VirtualBox, and have it be a DMZ'ed machine even though the host machine is not? Or does it have to be hardwired in, and I should scrounge for a small cheapo machine to use a DMZ server?

yes you can do that. most virtualization software allows you to configure the NIC with a pre-set of options, one of them should be direct from the local DHCP server.
