In the Server box, enter your RIST address. It will follow this format: rist://IP:port?cname=Cre8&bandwidth=5000

The IP will be the external IP address of your destination. Cname is a friendly name for your stream. Bandwidth is the maximum bandwidth you wish to stream at. Make sure this is set appropriately.

The Stream Key is not required and can be left empty as it won't require authentication.  When you are ready to start streaming, click Start Streaming.
