One thing I found while trying to get it to work for myself, was that 
the backend_settings.txt on the front end and the backend must be the 
same. At least in the version of CVS I was running.  I'm assuming this 
is because this feature is still under heavy development. Although, I 
was getting a 'Connection timed out' from the frontend, if your getting 
something else, can't really help. Sorry.
