    I know nothing about VM yet, but I would ask anyway if any configuration changes / updates have been applied to windows machine. Also, if firewall settings have been changed on any machine you are using to send files over.

    Thank you ivotkl for the reply.

    The windows vm, which i am currently trying to connect was restarted few days ago, and i am facing this prob since then.
    Will check the firewall settings and reply back.
    Do let me know if i need to check for some more configuration changes that might have chances of being changed with restart of the vm, which affect the connection.
