Depends on what is involved here

XP Pro has a upper limit of Concurrent connections of 10 connections so if you need more than 10 Concur net Connections you'll need a Server OS of some sought.

However if there is not a need for more than 10 Concurrent Connections at any one Time and you can be sure that your Server will release ended connections XP would be sufficient for your needs.

You can make windows xp as server.
