Cant connect to a project hosted with brinkster using visual interdev

I am using visual interdev for my classic asp projects.  I just recently moved to a new Dell Windows XP machine and found that I can't connect to any of my accounts on this machine with visual interdev.  I can still connect to them on my other computer. I also can connect to other hosting accounts, just not brinkster.  
I talked with brinkster and they can connect using front page so we know the extensions are fine.   Does anyone have any ideas why I am having this problem?

    I found the solution.  Norton antivirus had port 80 blocked.  This is the port that Visual Interdev uses.  From what I read online other people have this problem.  For some unblocking that port didnt help.
