[ILUG] telnet problem

I've set up port fowarding/tunneling from a machine with limited
network access to one with unrestricted access using putty.
One of the port forwards/tunnel is to a newsgroup server on port 119.
"ssh -L 119:newsserver:119 username at remote_machine"
This should allow me to connect to the news server if i direct my
news reader to connect to port 119 on the localhost.
For some reason this will only work under root login. A normal user
login won't allow the connection. (connection refused). Under normal
login I CAN however access another port forward on port 1080.
"ssh -D 1080 username at remote_machine"
So why am I prevented connecting to port 119 on localhost under a
normal login? Anyone got any ideas?
