Okay I tried the info on resetting the passwords and still the same 
thing. I verified that I had the pin set to 0000 in the general setting 
on the main myth setup. Now if I change the IP setting on the remote 
frontend database ssetup to point to the host name myth.mbppg.com 
instead of the actual IP then it seems to get past the login but then it 
says "cannot find (ping) database". If I uncheck the ping it stops 
responding and I had to stop the backend and then rerun the remote setup 
and recheck the ping box then restart the backend just for the screen to 
show back up.
