Or it could be a bug in Helix.  (Is version 9 the latest version?)

Problems like this are usually caused by RTCP packets from the receiver (in 
this case, VLC) back to the sender (in this case, the Helix server) not 
being recognized for some reason - so the session times out.

Do you have a publically-accessible "rtsp://" URL of a stream from a Helix 
server that illustrates this problem?
