Cannot open mms/rstp streams in Mplayer



I need to view video streams (via MMS) in FC6. Unfortunatly, I cannot
provide a url for testing as the stream must be accessed by an IP
within the my university. No other checks are made: no UA sniffing.
Note that the streams ARE playable in VMWare virtual machines running
MS Windows XP.

This is the output of Mplayer:
[dotancohen@localhost ~]$ mplayer

It seems as though it cannot find the server, however Windows Media
Player 11 in VMWare loads and displays that video just fine. There is
no AU sniffing at the server. What might prevent mplayer from
connecting? I have SELinux set to permisive, if that's important. I
did select to have a firewall when installing FC6, how would I check
if that's the problem? I actually don't think that the firewall is the
problem as VMWare machine DO connect fine.
