Do you have Real™ server installed?
We do not have real server installed we offer 'http streaming'.
Is there a difference between streaming using the PNM-protocol and the HTTP-protocol?
If you visit http://www.real.com/, you might come across a term called "pseudo-streaming". According to audiohost.com: "Pseudo-streaming" is a discriminating name for HTTP-stream. It was invented by the RealAudio promotion to suggest that you need to use the RealAudio server if you want to get "real" streaming. Here's a free translation: "Streaming RealAudio files without using RealAudio server software". That's all there is to it!
The RealAudio server actually has some special features that cannot be achieved (in RealAudio) without it.
Regarding "streaming" we cannot find a difference between the two protocols.
