I'm trying to set up a Linux machine as the server and a Windows XP machine as the client.

Both machines are connected to the same local network via a Wi-Fi router. I setup the stream with the following properties :

  • http stream
  • port 8080
  • play locally And not much else.

No firewall on the windows client(Windows firewall is disabled)

When I try to open network stream via the client machine(Using VLC or Windows Media Player) I get the following errors:

Media Player error code :

0xC00D11B3: Encountered a network Problem.

VLC Console:

main warning: connection timed out
access_mms error: cannot connect to
