[mythtv-users] Frontend connection problem\question

I have myth running on an ubuntu 6.10 frontend\backend that works perfectly. I used the binary packages from the ubuntu repos. I am now trying to setup a frontend only on another ubuntu 610 machine. This one is turning out to be a bear.
myth on the backend is setup to use an ip address-172.16.0.240, user mythtv and password mythtv. It is also setup up like this on the frontend only box.
I can connect to the mysql server from the fe only box on the command line and through mysql-admin as the user mythtv. For some reason I can't seem to get it to work through the mythtv fe only though.
I have read many posts about making sure nothing is set to 127.0.0.1 and I have done this. However when I start mythfrontend from the fe only box on the commandline I get this message:
2007-03-18 08:31:22.436 Connecting to backend server: 127.0.0.1:6543 (try 1 of 5)
2007-03-18 08:31:22.437 Connection timed out.
You probably should modify the Master Server
settings in the setup program and set the
proper IP address.

I have working ddns here. The mythtv server box is entered as a static address in dns. I also have put it into the /etc/hosts file on both machines. Also there is no mysql daemon running on the fe only box.
Where is it getting that 127.0.0.1 address from ?
Another question: on the fe only box do I need to be logged in as the mythtv user?
