First try

netstat -a

and look to see if its listening.

If you still can't find it, download a port scanner such as Nmap (My personal favorite :tazz: ) and look for an odd port to be open.

Though before I'd use it I'd make sure it's secure.

Go to Start>Run>cmd

That will bring up a command prompt. Netstat comes with XP :tazz: .
