1: I installed a lightweight FTP daemon on my VM and was able to FTP in locally (from the VM to itself) but was unable to FTP in from the Mac or any other machine on the network.
2: I ran through the "set up home or office network" wizard (first time I've done that in years - I always do it manually) and was able to read the share on my Media Center PC.
So it seems that all connections from the VM to anywhere on the local network and the Internet work fine, but all connections to the VM from the local network, Internet, or even host Mac do not work still.
*edit* Two more updates:
1: From the VM, I can even see the Windows shares on the Mac by going to \\192.168.99.86\thoughtfix
2: From the Mac, I cannot see the Windows shares on the VM but can see Windows shares from any other box on the network.
