Can't connect in Windows XP?

I recently got my hands on Windows XP. I have to say that this is the best OS that Microsoft has ever released.

Anyway, I had a problem connecting to servers in UT. Actually, it wouldn't even give me the server listing.

If you have this problem, you'll need to turn off the firewall (there may be another workaround where you leave the firewall up, but this works so I didn't look into it any further).

To turn off the firewall, go into the Control Panel and double-click Network Connections. Right click on the icon for your isp that you should have setup already, and click on Properties. Under the Advanced tab, take the checkmark off where it says Internet Connection Firewall.

You shouldn't have anymore problems connecting to UT servers.
