RTSP problem with Darwin Streaming Server

Hi there,

I am running Darwin Steaming Server (6.0.3-2) on CentOS 5.4, and I'm having a problem with RTSP requests only being answered on one network interface. For example:

eth0: (public net)
eth1: (local net)

Darwin is up and running on system A. I am using system B to test Darwin, by accessing it's administration page (port 1220). I can get to the administration page by using either the eth0 or eth1 IP addresses. So far so good.

But when I access a test file (sample.mp3) via RTSP, I can only get the stream if I use the IP associated with the eth0 address. If I try and access the file using the eth1 address, Quicktime gives me an error saying "-3285 Dissconnected"

Does anyone know what I'm missing here? In my config file, I was able to confirm that RTSP is answering requests on port 554, but I didn't see anything that would restrict it to a single network interface.

Here's a summary of the above: (works) (works)
rtsp:// (works)
rtsp:// (Does not work!)

Thanks in advance.

Does this help ?

Also check your firewall is open to 554 on eth1

Thanks for the link smoker, I finally got this working.

For reference, here is configuration option in streamingserver.xml:

<PREF NAME="bind_ip_addr" >0</PREF>

The value 0 means the streaming server should bind to all IP's on the server, which wasn't happening for me. So I replaced the value with the IP I want:

<PREF NAME="bind_ip_addr" ></PREF>

And it worked! I'm not sure why the default value wouldn't work (not running a firewall) but this is good enough for me.

Thanks again.
