Windows Tray Notifier and Network Connections

I have developer server on virtual machine with TeamCity Professional Version 3.1.2 (build 6881).
On my hardware machine I have 3 network connections - to local network of my ISP with dynamic IP, VPN connection to my ISP and local connection through loopback interface with static IP.
Last-named connection used to connect virtual machine.
When I run Windows Tray Notifier, it can't connect to TeamCity, but VS2008 add-in works fine.
When I run Windows Tray Notifier, I can't use all my connections because, I think, all applications cannot resolve DNS names.
When I click Exit in Windows Tray Notifier menu, my VPN connection is dropped.

I want to use Windows Tray Notifier, but I want to work also. Help me please. Sorry for my bad english.

To you have some security options for Internet Explorer on your machine? Windows Tray notifier uses IE to show information.
Do you have some proxy server settings?

Could you please try to kill windows tray notifier process. Does that affects you VPN connection?

What king of VPN do you use?

I found partial solution for this problem.
I use Outpost Firewall 2009 Pro and in it has settings for Windows Tray Notifier process "Allow all activities for this application".
But Windows Tray Notifier can't connect. Why?
If I shutdown Outpost Firewall service, notifier works fine.

My VPN connection (PPTP) dropped sometimes on Windows Tray Notifier shutdown.
I don't use proxy server.

Windows Tray notifier uses sockets to create XMLRPC connection to the server. Library that is used for that does not use Internet Explorer settings of connections.

BTW. Do you have some kind of settings for PPP connection to disconnect on IDLE or so?

Yes, settings of VPN connection are equal in both cases.
