Bonjour over the network in a Virtual Machine

I'm thinking about running osx in a virtual machine on windows, because I want to share a printer connected to the Windows box to another Mac on the network, but the printer sharing on Windows doesn't work for some reason (driver or permission issues I think), so I was thinking I could install the printer on the osx virtual machine, and share it from osx to the network. Would something like this work? I'm assuming the virtual machine shares the network connection from the Windows box, but does it pass it's various network protocols like Bonjour and AFP, on to the rest of the network? My experience with Virtual Machines is limited to running Parallels on my mac, so that's why I'm unclear as to how this would work.
