Problem trying to run windows screen streaming application using wine
Hello everyone,

i am trying to use wine, in order to make this windows program work under linux.
The program is called called Screenstream (, captures your screen (in fact, the topmost window), and broadcasts it as a series of .jpeg, which you can view as a stream from your browser on any computer, using serverIp:port as an address.

It is the only windows program remaining that i have the need of.

The program installs correctly. Then, i go to the program's menu, where amongst other, there is a field where it shows you your address (local or internet), allows you to run a wizard to detect it, and lets you choose the port through which you want to broadcast your screen.

The local ip i get from the router is 192.168.*.*
The outside ip is 79.***.***.***.

The program says that my public host name and ip is, and naturally,the browser cannot establish a connection (including the browser at my own system).

Manually setting the ip in the options to 192.***....or 79.***...., didn't make any difference.

I am thinking (assuming that the capturing procedure works well) that there may be a misinterpretation of my ip by wine.

I am using wine 1.1.9 on opensuse 11.1x64

The program works fine in the real windows environment.

If anyone has any idea,suggestion,etc, on what i could do to make it work with wine, i would be most thankful...
