I have a remote computer running OS X. I would like to stream the audio from the microphone input over the network so I can listen to it. Primarily I want to do this because I'm out of the office but still need to communicate with people there.

I would like to use VLC, but am not fully aware of the options available. I tried SoundFly (as recommended by another answer) but this didn't seem to want to connect. At this point I should note that I'm using a VPN network to connect to the remote computer (using Hamachi). I can open up ports / etc fine though, so I should be able to do this.

Alright, I found Nicecase which does exactly what I want but I would prefer to not have to shell out $40 for it.

It looks like you're not going to be able to do this with VLC. According to the VLC Features page VLC on the Mac only supports video capture (see footnote #5).
