Question Trouble w/ Windows XP on EC2 via Linux & qemu

In reference to this article about Windows on Amazon EC2:

I get to step 6 then I have a problem.
qemu -hda /dist/win2003srv.img -m 500 -boot c -redir tcp:3389::3389 -nographic
The Linux host isn't able to make Remote Desktop connections to the virtual machine running XP SP 2. I used Wireshark and saw that some, maybe 5, packets were being transmitted between the client and RDC server, but then it just times out. I disabled the Windows Firewall, and flushed iptables. Any thoughts? The Windows Event Manager also doesn't contain any related entries.

This hasn't much to do with EC2, I am doing this locally so there isn't an EC2 issue that could be causing problems. And yes I know Amazon supports Windows, but I need a desktop variant, not Windows Server.

Thank you.
