Using the Connections panel

Publishing point Displays information about the publishing server, including server status and number of connections.
Direct Connection Displays the IP addresses of each user who is connected to your local port and receiving your streamed output.
URLs Displays URLs of the locations to which you are pushing or from which you are pulling content. This corresponds to the streaming option that you chose.

The General listing displays the server to which you are pushing content, and the Alternative listing displays that server's publishing point. The Internet and LAN listings pertain to direct connection content that you are broadcasting from a local port. The Internet listing displays the Internet location from which you are broadcasting, and the LAN listing displays the port from which the broadcast is streaming.
