Do you have antivirus running on the windows xp machine ? Some AV's are know to block port access redirecting everything to a proxy for scanning.

It's also possible that your desktop firewall could be blocking the outbound connection.

Also double check you iptables firewall on the server it self it could be accepting connections only from your router.
