Please read the following: User Manual, ch. 6.2. Introduction to networking modes including the Overview of Networking Modes table, which shows quickly what kind of connection is required to achieve what you want. And remember, you can always have more than one network card in your guest to cover multiple scenarios.

I would go with a single Bridged adapter network card on your guest. That way the guest will look just like another computer on your LAN.
