Sorry, I was incorrect. mythfrontend doesn't, but it seems that 
mythbackend does. While trying to solve my problem of the connection 
timing out, I finally modified backend_settings.txt on the machine the 
backend was running on, and everything worked. mythbackend appears to be 
using this file to create the URL it sends to the frontend, correct? In 
any case, I know I didn't think of modifying this file, and modifying it 
seemed to fix my problem. I believe it actually tells you to do this in 
the CVS docs, but what would be the fun of reading documentation before 
you fix the problem. =)

BTW Issac, thanks for a great product.
