I believe what you want is...
on the BE+FE
Local Backend - IP Address 192.168.0.35
Master Backend - IP Address 192.168.0.35
on the FE
Database server settings - Hostname 'your_BE_hostname_here'
At least that's what I have (different IP addresses, naturally) and it works.
Presumably the 'your_BE_hostname_here' can be the IP address of the backend
server, I just have the hostname tho...
