I'm trying to run StreamTorrent and vlc on different machines. Unfortunately, I can't get vlc to connect to StreamTorrent on anything other than the loopback (127.0.0.1) IP address.
For example, my StreamTorrent machine has one NIC in it with it's IP address set to 192.168.1.109. There is no firewall installed.
If I open VLC and connect to http://127.0.0.1:15900/3.asf, or http://localhost:15900/3.asf, it works perfectly. But if I try http://192.168.1.109:15900/3.asf it doesn't work at all. Any idea why, or how to fix this?
I ask because I'd like to have StreamTorrent download the streams on my Windows machine, but then play the video on my Mac.
