Hi ,

Networking and firewalling changed in Vista wrt XP; by default your 
'TAP-Win32' adapters are in a 'public' zone which means very 
connectivity is allowed by default. Make sure that the TAP-Win32 adapter 
is in a networking zone where inbound connectivity is allowed. Sorry I 
cannot be more specific, but I don't have Vista at hand here (nor do I 
wish to) but I understand that this is one of the (major) changes in Vista.
