    I had the same problem. Solved it by entering network security and enableing
    the share my files function. When I shared my files. I could connect to my XP
    sp2 pc. When I had it turned off, I couldn´t.
    So in order to connect to another pc with Xp, you have to share files,
    Just like in DC++ hehe.. If you share you can connect ;)

    Hopefully this works
