I'm trying to setup a process to run in XP mode and be contacted from the Windows 7 host.

  1. I created a loopback in Windows 7 and set my XP mode VPC to use that as it's network adapter.

  2. I set a static IP (10.100.0.5/24) on the host and (10.100.0.15/24) on the VPC. The Gateway for the VPC is 10.100.0.5.

  3. I can ping the host from my XP mode PC

  4. I cannot ping the VPC from my host.

I need a service to bind to that 10.100.0.15 address on the XP mode VPC and serve data to the Windows 7 host at 10.100.0.5.
