I answered this same question earlier, and maybe it should go into the FAQ.
You must have missed my reply, I'm going to say this for everyone and so there
is no doubt:

YOU CAN NOT CONNECT TO A REFLECTOR WITH NV AND/OR VAT IF THAT REFLECTOR IS
RUNNING ON THE SAME HOST.

Yes, it would be nice to be able to do that, but since NV, VAT and reflect all
use UDP, it's not possible. Sorry....
