[mythtv-users] leanfront won't connect to backend

I hope this is the right place to ask this question.
I would like to use leanfront on my new Fire Stick 4k. Leanfront installed
successfully via adb, but after starting it gives me an error message that
it cannot connect to the backend and that it is sending the WOL packet. I
have double- and triple-checked that I entered the IP address of the
backend correctly. I left the port as the default. The odd thing is, both
mythtv-frontend and kodi are connecting fine from the very same Fire Stick.
So I'm pretty sure it is *not* an issue of either (1) global mysql setting,
or (2) network setup of the Fire Stick.
What else could it be? I checked some logs using logcat, and I couldn't see
anything about connection refused or the like. When I enter a menu, the log

01-31 19:51:19.535 11577 11602 E lfe     : AsyncBackendCall Exception
Getting backend Info.

01-31 19:51:19.533 11577 11601 W System.err: java.net.UnknownHostException:
Invalid host: http://192. 168. 1.

I'm not sure what to make of these messages, or how to learn more. Why
might mythbackend selectively refuse a connection from Leanfront but not
other frontends?
