My XP experience is a little limited so these are just suggestions

Start your mud, and in a command shell use netstat -an (the n is to speed it up, else it'll try resolving to the dns name for every entry in the list, which can take time, using the IPs should be good enough) to list all the listening and connected links. You should find there is a listening port for you mud on the port its supposed to use. If not, then you aren't binding and listening to the socket right.

If there is something listed, it will tell you which IP you have bound. If its 0.0.0.0 it has bound all available, otherwise it'll use 127.0.0.1 or the IP for your NIC or other devices as and if they have anything assigned.

You might also check your logs to see that the mud actually started successfully.

did you use that xp tweak file? you may want to take a look at what ports are close on it as well, windows has security problems so one of the things "included/forced on you" when you dl tweak things instead of doing registry by hand is it (depending on prog used) will close most ports for "safety"
it may be running fine and just not allowing those ports to connect.
but if you have redhat running anyway why not just use that?
i know i know, i always try to make things work that anyone says cant be done too.
