I do it like this:
On my linux (
Open file (advanced)
Select the avi, then in advanced options-> parameters
Click http, put the adress Port 8080 (*)
Transcoding options: choose your codecs
Click ok
click ok

Then on my client:

(*) If you want to put port 80 which is a priviledge port and not openable by a user, then you need to launch vlc as root!

I use this method for streaming to my pda.
