I don't see why it should make a difference if you run a client
or a server inside the guest OS. They both need a network connection.
However, QEMU's guest OS can behave like a real system on the network.

Have a look at <http://people.freebsd.org/~maho/qemu/qemu.html>
for a setup description. Of course you don't have to use bridge,
it works with if_bridge and NAT, too.
