I am trying to test an rtsp stream from Wowza to VLC Player installed on another computer on my local network. The problem is I cannot get it to connect. I have enabled port forwarding on my router so that port 1935 is forwarded to the local network computer that the Wowza installation is on using the TCP protocol. However when I try to connect with VLC Player to test the rtsp stream it gives error messages unable to connect.
The computer with the Wowza installation has local address of 192.168.1.84 and the network URL I am entering in VLC Player is rtsp://192.168.1.84:1935/live/feedstream where feedstream is the name of the stream I am publishing. The stream is active as I can view it in the Wowza test players. Also, in VLC Player I have set Tools-->Preferences-->Input Codecs-->Network to use RTP over RTSP (TCP).
There seems to be no reason that I can see why it should not connect?
Any help most appreciated.
