Without more information about what exactly you've tried it's hard to
guess what the problem is. gst-rtsp-server can serve streams both over
UDP and TCP. If you use rtspsrc/playbin as RTSP client with an rtsp://
URI, they will try UDP first and fall back to TCP if they haven't
received any UDP packets for a few seconds.

Are you trying this on a local network? The same host? Through a NAT-ed
router? Have you checked your firewall settings?
