Comment (by martin_ginkel@…):

 OK after some debugging I found a strange but simple solution:

 On my myth box I have the environment variables
 http_proxy=http://my.squid.box:3128 enabled.
 The Squid is working, but apparently QT uses these always for all tcp
 After unsetting the variables, mythfrontend listens as expected.

 The code for this is somewhere deep in QTcpServer::listen(), I have no
 Idea why this
 only fails for the network control port. But on my laptop it always
 worked, until I set
 the same environment variables, then the network control socket failed as


 '''export http_proxy='''
