gstvaapi and refused connection error rtspclientsink

I am trying to do something relatively simple - I hope. 

I am running on a raspberry pi and using the latest version of gstreamer.

My initial task I was trying to do was to create an RTSP 'repeater' using
gst-launch-1.0 rtspsrc rtspsrc location=rtsp:// !
rtspclientsink location=rtsp:// 8554/test . 

However I keep getting the error message: 

ERROR: from element
/GstPipeline:pipeline0/GstRTSPClientSink:rtspclientsink0: Could not open
resource for reading and writing.

(Any comments on the above pipeline would be appreciated.)

So I have tried to change the pipeline to something that I know should work.
However I appear to have two issues gstvaapi wont work for obvious reasons
(arm processor) and secondly I'm getting a connection refused error. I have
pasted the error below. 

Many thanks
