If I understand the question correctly, the OPs (Qazz) question is a little
more specific. I believe they are trying to see if they assign multiple IPs
to the Host, could they just get one IP to respond to guest activity. They
might be using the Guest as a NAT so they don't drain the IP pool of the
network. For example:

Host IPs

Guest IP (NAT Client)

Now Guest OS wants to access an external resource. How do you make sure
guest goes through route rather than
