My System Specs


Does anyone know why the VMware player clients are connecting to the internet when they're shut down?
They show as outbound connections in Comodo firewall under 'System' or svchost.exe (usually System).
Their destination IPs are the VMware client IPs.
Each client will show multiple connections in Comodo.
The connection stops if I start the clients up again.

I'm wondering if it has to do with one of the VMware services.
Haven't had time to mess with them though, and I'm not sure which are needed and which aren't.

VMware Agent Service
VMware Authorization Service
VMware DHCP Service
VMware NAT Service
