I can't see to work out why I can access the mythfrontend remote from local host but not on my home network using another PC or my iphone using the "MyMote" app.
If I ssh in remotely to the frontend machine I can control it ok as local host and I have the tick in the box to enable remote control like this:
but if I go directly to the IP address of the machine it doesn't have the port available.
bj@MythTV-Lounge:~$ telnet localhost 6546
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
MythFrontend Network Control
Type 'help' for usage information
open ports on frontend:
bj@bj-laptop:~$ telnet 220.127.116.11 6546
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out
As you can see there is no access to remote port 6456, but there is if you are directly attached to the box in terminal or using ssh.

Is there some bind address or firewall settings in mythbuntu I am not aware of? ufw is disabled.
