Help regarding separate network configuration for VMs

My home router has IP My proxmox server address is
Everything works ok.
Now, I've imported three ( SLES 15 SP4) VMs from VMware Workstation (they had Vmnet8 NAT configuration there). They have IPs, and on Vmware. At the moment, my problem is that I cannot set up ssh to these machines, I guess because they are on different networks (192.168.85.x) compared to the proxmox server (192.168.1.x). My question is, do I have to change the ip addresses for these three machines to be on the same network as the proxmox server, or is there an easy way to keep them on the same network 192.168.85.x?
I apologize in advance for my poor knowledge of networking, I'm working on it :)
