My backend host recently failed badly enough that I was not able to
salvage anything so I replaced the hardware and installed a new Ubuntu
20.04 and a new v31 mythtv-backend-master with xmltv.

I then upgraded a remote frontend (Ubuntu 18.04) from MythTV 30 to 31
but that frontend will not connect to the database.

I've checked and rechecked the frontend setup screen and everything is
correct. The config.xml files for both look like they should work. I've
tried the backend config with </host> = localhost and =
(the backend machine IP). The frontend config host is

I know the ip addresses are good. I can load into the
address line of the Firefox on the frontend machine and it finds the
database immediately.

I'm no doubt missing something obvious but I can't find it. It seems
like I have worn out 2 search engines trying.
