how to set up a client in win xp?

Mar 11, 2013 at 8:22 AM

I understand that winxp is going be departed soon, but it is not an option for me to use win 7/8 with the company IT policy.

I installed WinpkFilter 3.1 in my company and modified "setup/InstallAndRun.vbs"


I executed "Install.vbs" then got a message box "c:\BarbaTunnel-6.3-win\bin\BararMonitor.exe is not a correct Win32 application."

Please share some experience about how to run BarbaTunnel client on WinXP successfully.

Thank you very much.

I just fix BarbaTunnel for Windows XP -- FOR you. In http-tunnel You can use WinDivert one side and WinpkFilter in the other side.
Please note that you could not use BarbaMonitor and BarbaService in Windows XP because .NET 4.5 could not be installed in Windows XP but they are just some UAC and UI helper, Windows XP users should run BarbaTunnel.exe manually.
I checked it and it worked for me in my Windows XP virtual Machine.
Please download version 6.4.

hi BarbarCoder,

Thank you very much.

I executed BarbaTunnel.exe manually and so far no any error happens.

I still try to build a successful tunnel wit the outside server.

Thanks again.

Best regards.

You sould download WinpkFilter from here:

WinpkFilter have two mode for Windows XP, check it with another mode. Actually I couldn't install previous WinpkFilter with XEN box, but I got success for VMWare boxes. Let me know what is you virtual box technology.

Sorry, I have no more idea. I couldn't do anything when FilterDriver failed.
I tried windows XP Service Pack 2 and it work.
Maybe you have some other Network Adapter, try changing AdapterIndex
To see the list of all available Adapters run "listadapters.exe" in WinpkFilter folder.
