Many thanks for your help. So I can use this command to route the
stream to the network interface that I prefer to use. But I am still
struggling with the installation of VLC media player. I am using
Redhat 9.0 I downloaded the vlc_binary from:


for redhat and I tried running the rpm command with --nodeps option,
as mentioned in the link :

but i got the following messages:

warning: a52dec-0.7.4-7.1.fc3.fr.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY,

        file /usr/lib/libvcdinfo.so.0.0.1 conflicts between attempted
installs of vcdimager-libvcd-0.7.20-1.1.vlc and libvcd-0.7.20-3

What could i be doing wrong?

Thanks ,
