AG seemed to work on XP-SP2; however, the biggest issue I found is there 
seems to be no way of allowing a block of ports through the XP firewall. 
  From what I can see, each port must be individually allowed through 
the firewall....

While most of the connections are 'firewall friendly'... the streams use 
RTP port pairs - so you have to tell the firewall about the additional 

Its not really a practical solution to enter the ports individually if 
the venueserver you are connecting to selects random ports from a range 
50000 to ~65000.

I've only preliminarily investigated this... however this problem seems 
to be confirmed at this article:

If anyone has a work around I'd be interested to hear!
