Debug Remote -- Fails on XP -- Works on Win2K

All,

I've an interesting scenario. Just ported from win2k to winxp and magically, remote debugging support has failed me. When I attemtp to connect to the remote JVM (localhost), I see the debug window spit out:

"Connecting to target VM at "localhost:5000" using socket transport"

However, it never locks in like it did on 2k -- just hangs forever attempting to connect.

Anyone else seen this?
Running build #692.

Thanks,
Cory

Use a different port for the remote connection (in the remote settings
pane), 5000 is used by XP. Try 5005, that's what the default IDEA
installation suggests since the XP "problem" was discovered. Don't forget to
update the port setting for the server app as well.

HTH,
Andrei

To no avail -- tried 5005, tried 7000...trying a few more ports.

Just a thought, it wouldn't be the built in firewall that xp has enabled by
default would it?
