this isn't a deal or question about a deal but we seem to have some very knowledgeable PC people here. I have a laptop with win 7 os and I use VM player to launch a Linux programme to connect voip phones to. this worked fine until yesterday when I couldn't access or ping the Linux programme from my laptop but the VoIP phones worked correctly , and I could connect a second laptop to the switch and access the programme. I must have disabled something or changed something which prevents me from getting to the VM player. any ideas what?
