Well, I think you have two problems:
1. your XP firewall is misconfigured and not allowing the local
connection (that is why disabling it allows xmaxima to work);
2. your maxima is not working on vista or 7. I am not a windows
user, so I will punt this to the person who built the current
maxima windows installer.
