mythfrontend telnet interface does not listen on correct address

The telnet interface of mythfrontend only tries to listen on the loopback addresses and the backend server addresses. This is inappropriate when the frontend runs on a different host than the backend.

Incorrect. The frontend control socket (it's not telnet) listens on localhost, and whatever IP address you have configured as the server address for that host. If none are defined, it will listen to all available private addresses. If it is complaining that the selected address does not exist, then you have misconfigured those addresses in mythtv-setup.

That used to be the case, but commit f5aa5e83 changes it to use the addresses found in ServerPool::SelectDefaultListen?(). If the BackendServerIP setting is non-null, then it uses this value for the listen address.

If I run the frontend and backend on the same host, with the backend server address configured to via mythtv-setup, then the telnet interface only binds to the loopback addresses. Changing BackendServerIP to the host's LAN address causes the telnet interface to bind to the LAN address.

However you want to word it, that is the intended behavior.
