A couple of things:
1) Make sure XP's built in firewall isn't running
2) Make sure your buddy's player application is pointing to

You could also just try firing up winamp or iTunes on another computer on your
local network and try opening the URL http://192.168.0.x:9000/stream.mp3. Make
sure to replace x with your local IP (use ipconfig from a command prompt to
determine your ip). This might help narrow down where its getting lost.

You'll also need to set up the player from the web interface, but that's
explained in the advanced secion of the FAQ (either on the slimdevices site or
within your server interface).
