Actually, it is working, but you need to configure your hostname
correctly. Probably this part of your mythweb.conf file:
# By default, MythWeb uses the hostname program to look up the
hostname of the
# machine it runs on. If this reports incorrect data, or you
run MythWeb on a
# machine without the hostname program, set this to your
# setenv hostname "my_mythbox"
