[mythtv-users] frontend fails

I'm building a myth system for a mate.
Because of hastles with mythbuntu I've built from source (MythTV Version 
: v0.28.1-3-gfc737ff-dirty) and made a deb and am running on ubuntu 16.04.
Backend / Frontend machine works normally.

A seperate frontend machine cannot find the backend.

myth at slave:~$ telnet ws132 6543
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

OK that's clearly the reason

myth at master:~$ netstat -anp |grep 6543
tcp        0      0* LISTEN      -
tcp6       0      0 fe80::fc70:940a:21:6543 :::* LISTEN      -
tcp6       0      0 ::1:6543                :::* LISTEN      -

Hmm nothing in setup mentions 127... or localhost.
I see nothing in config that would say localhost.
My own master backend (also compiled from source  MythTV Version : 
v0.28.1-3-gfc737ff) is quite different:

[sandypit] /home/jam [628]% netstat -anp |grep 6543
tcp        0      0* LISTEN      -
tcp        0      0* LISTEN      -
tcp        0      0 ::1:6543                :::* LISTEN      -

Can anyone cast light light on what is happening, more importantly why?
