Still problems with mythfrontend binding only to localhost

Reported by: dag@… Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.25.2
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Still something fishy here: I have a setting where the backend address is definitely set to the external IP of that backend. Still my frontend insists on listening only to

Proof from the log:

2012-10-10 12:14:27.648154 I  Loading sv translation for module mythzoneminder
2012-10-10 12:14:27.652469 I  Listening on TCP
2012-10-10 12:14:27.815941 N  Found mainmenu.xml for theme 'Readability'

2012-10-10 12:14:28.158288 I  Using protocol version 72

I do have a slightly "strange" backend with an alias for a non-proxied net, and the backend only listened to the alias+localhost (separate bug I guess) if I left the IP address of himself empty: My interfaces on the backend are:

  • eth0
  • eth0:1
  • lo

Interfaces on frontend the usual:

  • eth0
  • l0

Tell me if I can give more useful info!

The unconfigured behavior is for mythfrontend to listen on all available addresses, however you ran mythtv-setup on the frontend machine, applying the default configuration of Run mythtv-setup again, on the machine that your frontend runs on, and either blank that setting, or give it your eth0 address.

Thanks! Didn't realize that you had to run mythtv-setup on the frontend in question, but tried to run it on the backend. Clearing it out did NOT work though, still insisted on listening to localhost only. Setting the name of the frontend did not work either. Had to set the IP of eth0 explicitly, which is not so good as this is getting the address through DHCP...
