Thanks, you were right, all I had to do was enable network control  
where you indicated. It now works.

It would be nice if the app had a way of storing frontend ip addresses  
so you could quickly switch without manually entering numbers.  It  
would definitely help with the W.A.F.  Perhaps a later version of the  
app will include that.
