Well you were talking about using Multicast RTP to get sound to output
on several network devices at once. I really just wanted to get the
sound from one machine to output on one other machine. Before I really
learned about pulse's capabilities properly I didn't realise about the
module-tunnel-sink (which is now loaded automatically when zeroconf
detects the presence of another pulse system on the network - previously
you needed to load it manually). With a tunnel I can easily redirect the
output of one machine to another which is all I really wanted. ;)

Well run pulseaudio -vvvv on both machines and look for the error
messages that pop up. Chances are it will say "Protocol error"....
