If you were once able to communicate between the Win98 and XP systems, but
just recently it stopped working, check your most recent security updates on
the XP system(s). I've had XP systems receive the latest security patches
and no longer be able to communicate with Win98/95/2000 systems (patches and
unpatched). I think the patch that caused my particular issue was KB885250.
Once removed, the systems could communicate without issues. This may not be
related to your particular issue, you never know...
