Ah! this may be a little more tricky.  Do you have control of the
firewall?  Where we are doing this remotely, we either set up a LAN to
LAN VPN or remote dial-up VPN.

Without knowing much about the setup (where the XP box is) it is
difficult to advise.  An alternative is to assign a public IP address to
the XP box with NAT translation on your router.  This is a bit out of my
depth... someone else may have a better suggestion.
