First, tuner-less backends aren't supported.  A backend without tuners 
is either just a mythjobqueue host (in which case, run mythjobqueue) or 
a streaming server (in which case, run mythmediaserver).  Running a 
remote backend without tuners accomplishes nothing.

You changed/verified both the master backend and this backend IP 
address?  (And IPv4 and IPv6 for each?)

We'd need the exact error message to do more than guess.
