A default XP2 install will break Condor. 

In Condor 6.6.7 we will have added a feature to the condor_master which 
adds the various condor daemons to the "trusted applications" list for 
the firewall. Applications in this list are excepted from the firewall.

Until that release is available, you will have to add the condor daemons 
to the trusted list yourself. The netsh command line utility allows you 
to make such additions. Remember to add the condor_master, condor_startd,
condor_schedd, and condor_shadow and condor_starter - they're transient
daemons, but are important.
