Error streaming with Matrox to Wowza


I’m having connecting streaming my Matrox Monarch HD to the wowza server. The Monarch gives me the following error.

RTMP Streaming [“rtmp:// flashVer=“FMLE/3.0 (compatible; FMSc/1.0)” swfUrl=“rtmp://” pubUser=test pubPasswd=test1”] : Error Message: “Could not open resource for writing.”

Does anyone knows how I can fix this error?

If the connection is not reaching the server it’s likely a firewall issue between the source and Wowza.
