    Hi,
    If you're repeating a stream from another server then the server in which clients connect to play the stream will be the edge.
    Please see the following tutorial on Origin and Edge configuration,
    How to configure a live stream repeater

    Hi,
    After reading you post again I've got the impression that you're trying to ingest a Apple HLS stream from a none Wowza source which is not currently supported.
    If you send the stream to Wowza over RTMP or RTSP and then packetize on the Wowza origin, the edge server will be able to repeat the streams.

    If you're wanting to get the source stream and packetize on the server your clients are connecting to you can setup origin/edge on the same server (2 different applications) or use a .stream file to pull the source stream to Wowza then packetize on the server now acting as an edge. More information on .stream files and how to create them can be found in the tutorial below should you want to try this method,
    Publish the stream using a .stream file

    You can probably do this with the latest version of VLC following this guide, the transcoding examples at the bottom
