You try to make the connection in the wrong direction. Your sound
hardware on host2 won't be making any connections to your applications -
it's the other way around.

So, do this:

Load module-native-protocol-tcp on host2 like you did on host1

Also load module-zeroconf-publish on host2.

Then on host1 run paprefs and enable "Make discoverable PulseAudio
network sound devices available locally".

Now all hardware on host2 should be visible also on host1.
