Using WinSrv2003 on Fusion as a host

Ran into a little problem the other day with my class mate.

We were attempting to run WinSrv2003 as the host to a Vista Client in VPC2007

The question is could you using Fusion to run the server as the host and then connection to that host from accross the network using the VPC2007 Vista Machine?

Yes, you can. In your case, it doesn't matter what the host is so long as both guest virtual machines have access the to the same LAN. Since they are on different hosts (i.e.: Fusion & VPC) then most likely you want to use bridged networking so that the Windows 2003 virtual machine appears just like any other machine on the network.
