I've kludged together a solution for those times here by using the NAT 
connection, but then running an OpenVPN client on the guest to an 
OpenVPN server with layer-2 adjacency to those sorts of devices.  That 
has the added bonus of letting those layer-2 services work even from 
off-site (part of the reason I use LUKS!).  I use static addresses in 
the OpenVPN setup as well, allowing controlled access to certain 
resources (like the control interface addresses and ports to our two 
26-meter radio telescopes).

I am interested in what you find!

Dell Precision M6700 with Core i7-3740QM @ 2.7GHz, 24GB RAM, 500GB SSD 
plus 2x 1TB HGST 7K1000's.  I never buy new, always gently preowned, and 
it's amazing to me how well the 3740QM performs relative to newer 
stuff.... and I paid less than 10% of MSRP for it....
