    Go to:
    Start button
    Network connections
    under the "lan or high speed internet" there should be an entry (mine says "local area connection", but I am running a home lan), not sure what yours will be called, but right-click on it and select "status"
    the default screen is the "general" tab
    select "properties"
    select "advanced"
    there is a checkbox for "internet connection firewall", xp enables this by default, remove the check to disable the feature

    I hope this is your only problem. Good luck!
