the host thats running the VM, is it connected to a LAN behind a 
firewall/router, or directly to the internet?   if directly, is there a 
dedicated internet IP address that the VM can use?    if yes, then you 
want a bridged network where the VM uses that dedicated internet IP 
seperate from the host's IP.

if its on a LAN with private addressing, you want to use a dedicated LAN 
IP address, seperate from the host's LAN IP, but since its behinda NAT 
router, I really don't know how you'd expect it to use DDNS as that will 
only see the router's internet IP address.
