I want to stream my desktop to a VPS, where everyone can see it without additional software. My Computer runs on Win7, the VPS on Debian. I already set up VLC on the VPS, and the webinterface is working (although it's pretty ugly, in my opinion). But how can I tell the server now to accept the stream from my desktop?
