If the encoder is running on a different machine than the server running Wowza Media Server then you cannot use localhost to address the Wowza Media Server. You must instead use the Wowza Media Server external or NAT IP address. Also, be sure that TCP port 1935 is open on the machine running Wowza Media Server. You can test connectivity to the server from the machine running the encoding software by opening a web browser and entering the address:
Where [wowza-ip-address] is the external or NAT Ip address of the server running Wowza Media Server. Once you get this working then use this same address in your rtmp URL.
