Port forwarding not working on Hyper-V Virtual Machine



    I have my main server with a Windows Server 2008 64 bit deployment. There is one hyper-v virtual machnine installed (w/Windows Server 2008 32 bit). I have the main server set up with port forwarding in preparation of an Exchange Server deployment. The port forwarding works fine. I can get the box with the FQDN or typing in the I.P. address. My virtual machine is set up for port forwarding, as well. But the forwarding will not work. All the settings in my router are identical to the main server's settings. My network adapter setting for the VM is set to external. I can see the VM on the network. I can ping it with it's local i.p. address and for all internal networking functions, it performs just like a physical machine. The port forwarding will just not work.


    Is there some setting on the VM or NIC that will allow this machine to properly use port forwarding?
