I have a network issue that I've been avoiding for a while.  I've finally
decided to spend some time on it to get it solved.

On my Archlinux/EndeavourOS frontend 'firewalld' runs as the network
firewall. Once I set the default Zone to Home most things run fine.
However, I can't seem to ever get mythfrontend to search to find the

What I can do is turn off firewalld, run mythfrontend, and when it fails to
connect with the backend have it search for it.  When it finds the backend,
it setups up config.xml and everything will continue to work after I turn
firewalld back on.

There is a service listed in firewalld GUI that is called 'upnp-client'.

Would that be the thing I need to allow?
