    According to a reliable source...

    There are numerous application level VPN clients, including some from
    Juniper, that perform port forwarding and rely on multiple virtual
    loopback addresses (, 127.0.0.x, 127.0.0.y, etc) in order to
    function. Some time after RC2, Windows began denying connections through
    loopback addresses other than, due to a bug. Netcat can easily
    reproduce and confirm these problems.
