      Are you multicasting it or unicasting?
      Are you using a source specific multicast address for the remote machine to look at the stream?
      There is no p in Thomson.

      I couldn't see where you set that in VLC. I Just setup the stream and set the IP address as local IP and the port as 80. I am new to VLC streaming lol so dont know what you mean sorry.

      you need to set up port forwarding, also make sure firewall rules are in place.

      On your netgear, login to the router:
      2) click security
      3)3rd tab along, "firewall rules"
      4)under "inbound services" click add
      5)under "service" choose "HTTP(TCP:80)"
      6)in the box below, choose ALLOW
      NOTE if the machine viewing the stream has a static ip, select this, otherwise leave WAN users to ANY
      7)SENT TO LAN SERVER, input the pc ip that the service is running on
      your done. also, i would advise that you "log" so you can see the ip's that connect to the stream. now all you need to do is open the stream via vlc, input the ip followed by the port number ( as you have / are using a standard port number, you may not need to enter the port number, which in your case is port 80 ). im not sure about a stream but you could try canyouseeme.org and enter port 80 and it will ping your service. if it cannot be found, ( connection timeout ), make sure it is enabled.
