honestly, have you tried to find out _where_ the error is (the mac, the
xp box, the network) as suggested in previous mails?
probably i have overlooked this in sos...

can you connect from mac to mac (localhost)?
can you connect from xp to xp (localhost)? (ok, you tested this!)

what is inbetween the 2 machines? another firewall? (a real one, not a
"personal firewall" nonsense)

have you tried installing Pd on the mac and see what it gets?
do you have other machines available for testing?

have you tried other ports?
are you sure that both objects are working in the same protocol (UDP).

you could try to find some cmd-line tools for sending (and receiving)

again: "netcat" is the swiss army knife for _anything_ network related.
it will allow you to fake both a server (netreceive/dumpOSC) and a
client (netsend/sendOSC).
