No internet in VM (Windows Server)

Hi there!

Me and my friend have a HP ProLiant server running with ProxMox. We've installed Windows Server as a VM. The installation with drivers was succesful.

Except the internet part. We have 1 main IP in the data center and we want to add a virtual IP to the VM so people can host on our server like a website or gameserver.

We've watched many video's and tutorials but still it won't work.

So our question is: How can we connect our Windows Server VM to the internet?

Thanks in advance!
