EAH Master Slave

I can’t get the Master Slave feature working I have tried reseting EAH via steam on both boxes to no avail. I can play from one box to the other but cannot get EAH to link up. I have reset the password on both I have even tried using the stand alone version of EAH on the slave box to no avail. The logs say it connects on the lower port but when it steps up to the port 1000 higher it fails. I confirmed the router is working even change the ports to another set and still no joy. At this point I am at a loss as to how to fix this. I want to get is working as I have other admins on the server that would benefit from access to the tools.
