Interesting thought. Evidently I'm connecting via static IP.
A quick test, unplugging the LAN, confirms your theory. Connection lost. 
Plug it back in, back to normal.
I'm using a slave FE so loopback is not an option.
I've never understood FQDN or been able to successfully create one and 
use it to connect to Myth or other computers.
Apparently it's time to learn.
Thanks for the education!
