Subject RE: [ib-support] Can't connect to server
Author Leyne, Sean

I don't believe that XP Home allows TCP Server functions to operate.

Connecting via LocalHost is not a true test of the 'server'
functionality (as far as XP goes). Also, ping is an ICMP message not a
TCP message, so again not the same thing as far as XP goes.
