If you have Windows PC connected to a Unix box which is the gateway to the net and you want to use real audio player you have to install a proxy on the server.
Automatically select most efficient transport: checked
select network transports; Multicast, Unicast, UDP, TCP: not checked
use specific UDP port: not checked
Use Proxy: checked
The gateway running the RA proxy must be able to make an outgoing UDP connection on port 7070 and receive UDP packets on this port. So if you are using IP wrappers, NAT or whatever, make sure the gateway can work on this port, UDP, not TCP.
Make sure you have
raproxy on you machines, the
examples below have in residing in
The RealAudio proxy will need a name in your
/etc/services file for
inetd to reference it. To name the service, you need to add the
RealAudio proxy protocol (named "raproxy" here) as a protocol in your
raproxy 1090/tcp #Progressive Networks' RealAudio Proxy
The raproxy program will be controlled by initd, you will need to
add an entery into
/etc/inetd.conf as per:
raproxy stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/lib/raproxy raproxy
At this point, you should be able to send a HUP signal to your inetd daemon. From a shell prompt:
# ps -ef | grep inetd root 96 0.0 1.0 224 300 ?? Is Thu10AM 0:00.46 inetd # kill -1 96 #You should now be able to use RealAudio as a proxy server.
