Bridge returns Network Error

Jun 19, 2013 at 11:10 AM
Hi all,
since 2 Days the Bridge ( returns this Error when I try to connect:

username@yyy.zzz fail tp log-on!
Error Msg: Network error. Please check the network connection and try again.
Error Code: 0x80048820
Extend Error Code: 0x80048406

I didn't make any Changes since 4 Days at the (Win7 prof. SP1) OS, the last Change was the OS-Update from MS.
All other Network-Connections are working well.

Best regards,

It seems that Microsoft has discontinued the authentication schema (Passport). For more info see:

I saw per the last post in this link

that it appeared authenitcation was working again so, just on a whim, tried to log in on the Community NNTP Bridge. I got a different error than before.
See below.

503 program fault - command not performed System.ServiceModel.ProtocolException: The content type text/html; charset=utf-8 of the response message does not match the content type of the binding (application/soap+xml; charset=utf-8). If using a custom encoder, be sure that the IsContentTypeSupported method is implemented properly.

Protocol: NNTP
Port: 119
Secure(SSL): 0
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 503
Code: 800ccca4

Is that any advancement toward restoring bridge functionality or just false hope? Thanks

This is not an error in the bridge... the web-service displays an error page... which is not a valid reply for a web-service...
