Widows XP Remote Desktop IPv6

Windows XP Remote Desktop service does not listen on IPv6 addresses. Use the follow trick to fix it:

This command will do the trick.
netsh interface portproxy add v6tov4 listenport=3389 connectaddress=127.0.0.1 connectport=3389

After using it you'll be able to connect using a recent version of Remote Desktop Client over IPv6 to a WinXP/Win2k3 box.
