Sorry, I have an update. Typing:
lsof -i :3306
had no effect but typing:
sudo lsof -i :3306
COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE NODE NAME
mysqld 5558 mysql 13u IPv4 18017 TCP *:mysql (LISTEN)
mysqld 5558 mysql 73u IPv4 25245 TCP
The established with the FE IP address is encouraging however I still
cannot get the FE to connect. I go into Myth Control Centre and test the
MySQL connection and I get a fail every time.
I am beginning to think that I should chuck it all in and start again
but I don't know how or what I would do differently.
I don't know if it is worth anything but when I installed MythTV on the
BE machine it installed Myth Control Centre on it too but it has never
worked. The best I can get it to do is ask me for a password.
