In VirtualBox you set this up as follows:

* open VirtualBox
* open the settings window for your VM
* go to "network", open the appropriate "adapter" tab (typically the first 
* set the "attached to" setting to "bridged adapter"
* click "OK"

This sets up bridged networking for your VM --- it will behave on equal 
footing as the host OS itself, ie. it will request an IP from your router's 
dhcp (or whatever your host OS uses to set itself up). Depending on your ISP 
and local network setup, it should have a real IP as much as your host does, 
and will be visible from any other machine on your LAN.

I don't remember how to do it under KVM/QEMU and VMWare, but it should also 
amount of choosing "bridged" networking somewhere in some settings.

HTH, :-)
