Since I upgraded to version 0.25 I have the same problem reported in the
ticket [http://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/10654]. Before the upgrade, the
mythmote Android could connect to my MythTV. After the update, the
mythmode can no longer connect.

Comment:

Just as invalid as the previous ticket. If you specify what address
MythTV's servers are to listen on, it will listen on that and only that
address. Leave it blank, or set it to the address you want to connect to.

Comment (by Fabio <fabio.marras@…>):

OK, but let me some things:
* how do you explain that with the release 0.24 and the same
configuration, mythtv was working well
* don't you think that you should update the contextual help of the "ip
address" field: it is not clear at all that I can leave it blank
* I'm an user, not a developer. Is it allowed to have some doubt or
problem using mythtv, or mythtv is for hackers only?

However, I have the impression that you did not understand my problem. The
Mythtv client has no problem to connect to mythtv backend. I have problem
with external clients, mythmote precisly, that try to connect to the
mythtv-frontend on the port 6546.

Regards,

Fabio

Comment (by wagnerrp):

I understand your problem. You are running a single combined frontend and
master backend. With no remote frontends, you left the default IP
configuration of 127.0.0.1. Since that value is set, the various servers
in the frontend obediently follow it, and only listen on 127.0.0.1,
meaning MyMote cannot connect externally.

If you want to access your control socket from the network, set an
accessible IP in mythtv-setup, or make that value blank so the frontend
auto-selects appropriate addresses to listen on (which would of course
break the backend which requires that setting). If for whatever reason
you want to keep the backend listening only on 127.0.0.1, but still want
your frontend to listen on a network accessible address, you need to run
them using different configuration profiles, by manually specifying a
profile to use with the "LocalHostName" option in your
~/.mythtv/mysql.txt.

If the above is not an accurate assessment, feel free to re-open this
ticket and provide logs from startup of your frontend.

Comment (by Fabio <fabio.marras@…>):

Yes, I run a single combined frontend and master backend. I tryed to
follow your instructions, but without success. I tested that my IP is
accessible through mythweb: I manage to connect to
http://192.168.1.132/mythweb from external clinet without problems. Wich
log do I have to provide you? mythfrontend.log or mythbackend.log?

I need to see frontend logs from startup. Specifically, this bit here...

Comment:

Six weeks with no response to show frontend is actually listening on
accessible address. Closing under the assumption error is a
misconfiguration as described.

Comment (by fabbio.marras@…):

You are right! I'm very sorry, but with one wife and two sons it's not so
easy to send a log :-(
Meanwhile I update Mythtv, and my problem get bigger. I am running a
single combined frontend and master backend and the frontend can't see the
master backend. This are the pastbin code of frontend e backend log:

I believe this is a separate issue, so I have opened a new ticket for it.
See #11030.
