 I hate to re-report an issue with a locked ticket (#10671) but I am
 experiencing the same problem and it feels a lot like a bug.  See that bug
 for the background on the issue.

 This is on a remote frontend.

 I can confirm that I have "LocalHostName" set in mysql.txt and the
 frontend network control port is not binding to that IP address.  It only
 binds to localhost.

 In serverpool.cpp, it appears that the code tries to add "BackendServerIP"
 (which won't work on a remote frontend) and does not reference
 "LocalHostName" from mysql.txt (as far as I can tell).

 The chunk of code in serverpool.cpp which would step through all available
 interfaces is NOT executed because of this test:
 config_v4.isNull() && (ip.protocol() == QAbstractSocket::IPv4Protocol))
 At this point, config_v4 is not null -- it contains the IP address
 specified by BackendServerIP -- so the following code that would step
 through each interface does not get executed.

 Here's a snip from the frontend log:
 2012-05-14 11:34:47.898702 C  ServerPool: Host is configured to listen on, but address is not used on any local network interfaces.
 2012-05-14 11:34:47.911098 I  Listening on TCP
 2012-05-14 11:34:47.911472 I  Listening on TCP [::1]:6547
 2012-05-14 11:34:59.132162 I  Listening on TCP
 2012-05-14 11:34:59.132380 I  Listening on TCP [::1]:6546

 In the past, I -think- that it was important to set "LocalHostName" in
 mysql.txt so that configuration items would be stored correctly for a
 remote frontend.... if that's no longer the case, let us know :)

 My install of mythtv is from the 0.25-286 rpms from atrpms

 Thank you all very much for all the hard work on MythTV!
