That is quite what I noted, the thing is that apparently the delay for
clicking 'ok' is taken into account for the measurements ;)

The standard Windows Firewall on XP asks the user if it is okay if a
program, in this case java, is allowed to open a listen socket.

This is common for quite a few firewall tools out there, and the moment
you have hit okay, all is fine.

On Win7 one can even enable the same question for outbound requests, one
of the few things that is actually missing in XP IMHO.

But all of that is not really operational....
