Unable to acquire IP address on VPC2007

I am running Win XP on VPC2007 on Vista 32 bit. Everything was working fine until I installed Acomodo Firewall (V3). Now I get the dreaded ‘yellow triangle’ on network icon.

On network confiiguration I am using Shared Networking (NAT) on Adapter 1 and physical (Intel) network card on Adapter 2.

Adaper 1 gets IP address and I can browse the internet. It is Adapter 2 that I get yellow triangle and Limited or no connectiveity. Host machine claims V{C is offline.

I have tried everything that I read in this forum

Any thoughts!!!
