You are not going to believe this, but I was fiddling about putting ethereal 
up to try and check what username was going between the machines and it 
suddenly just started working.

I have no idea what I have done that makes it work, or why it wasn't working 
before. (I have only just switched over the Datasource Realm because I 
couldn't get the UserDatabase Realm to work either.).
