To configure a slave backend, you have to connect to the backend you are 
configuring, as in http://slave:6544. Nothing special is built into the 
APIs. The web app reads the settings and compares the Master server name 
against the host name to determine if this is a slave backend.

I found that when you are running the web app from one backend you 
cannot use an API on another backend, the browser prevents it. This 
makes sense as otherwise a web page from the internet could access APIs 
on your internal network. There are probably ways to allow it, but I did 
not go into that.
