I tried with vlc 0.9.0 and :
live555 demux error: no data received in 10s, aborting

So vlc never receives streamed data and closes the connection.

You have a segmentation fault because with vlc 0.8.6, when you try to read a
rtsp stream which is unreachable it segfaults.
This bug is fixed in 0.9.0

PS : with wireshark I have this packet :
35 5.632274 192.x.x.x ICMP Time-to-live exceeded (Time to live
exceeded in transit)

So the server may not be well configured (just a guess).
