The former should work. The latter is Windows-name-style and has nothing to
do here.

I'm not a windows-user, but there should be ways to determine which program
listens to which port on a machine.

And a common problem is that servers listen on 127.0.0.1 instead of the
ethernet interface. 

Try putting the server's IP as argument to the listening XMLRPC-server, and
check with the windows-netstat-equivalent if it works out.
