Hi friends,

              I have finally managed to build ffserver.exe for windows using
cygwin with svn-r17550. My next step is to start the ffserver. I have taken
the sample ffserver.conf from the documentation. On executing,

<prompt> ffserver -f ffserver.conf

I am getting the following error,

*Address family not supported by protocol.
Could not start the server.*

Please guide me to fix the problem. Also if conf file is the problem, pls
provide a sample conf which just starts the server. Awaiting your

Prabhu R
