I'm no techie, so I can't explain it. But BOTH new NNTP Bridges use the
127.0.0.1 address. One, the "Microsoft Forums NNTP Bridge", uses NNTP Port
119 at that address, which it refers to as "Localhost". The other, the
"Microsoft Answers NNTP Bridge", uses NNTP Port 120 at the same address,
which it calls simply "127.0.0.1" by default.
They may be confusing to start, but both bridges are working for me. (After
a year of frustrating beta-testing.) (And I STILL prefer good old NNTP
