Streaming with VLC

Specs: Windows XP, 2/2
I'm trying to stream video between two computers on my school network using VLC. I'm not sure what to type in on the server computer. I try RTP/UDP and type in the other computers local IP address and leave the port as 1234. But then I'm not sure what to type in on my other computer to get it to see the stream. SHould I be using HTTP? RTP? UDP?

I don't know anything about that program but knowing what I know about http, you don't have an http address on a PC if there is no server running on it. Try one of the other protocols.

I tried setting up an apache server which worked for streaming I suppose but I wasn't streaming over VNC I don't think, I think it was just streaming the actual file off of my computer without using VNC which is a problem because I need it to be transcoded.

"two computers on my school network"

The Sys Admin are probably blocking the School Network from this activity

Sorry I meant VLC. I was able to stream using my apache server but it didn't go through VLC it just streamed from the server directly
