You have added a default router of the guest itself ? (Or am I reading that wrong ?)
Also can you supply all the IP address, etc of the Win XP box ?
("ipconfig /all" and "netstat -rn" outputs would be useful)

The reason is quite simple: you've placed the VM in the 192.168.50.0/24 network, but the host machine is in the 172.20.3.0/24 network. To establish communication between these the default gateway (172.20.3.2) would have to know how to route between these.

Put the VM into the correct network and connections should work without problems.
