You mean Linux guest and WinXP host I assume? As there is no support for tuntap
in a Windows host, and never will. (Windows doesn't directly provide the
need to do this. I am aware of two alternatives: the easy way is to set up VPN
through user-net, the hard way is to patch qemu to use winpcap.)

Look up the -redir option.
