VPN Client, WinXP SP2, & error 51

Launching VPN Client 4.6.02 on a Win XP SP2 desktop I get error message 51 IPC Socket allocation failed. I've stopped and retarted services and get same error. I turned off windows firewall, rebooted and tried again, same error. I've uninstalled / reinstalled the client and get same message. Machine is also running McAfee Viruscan 8.0. Any ideas?

Thanks, I tried that but it didn't resolve the problem. I did find a solution and it turns out to be XP's firewall. You need to open port 62515 as UDP. Instructions available at the following site.
