I think we need to go back to square 1 and start from there.
1.) Kill the EMS.
2.) Remove all log files.
2.) From the installation directory, search for pushpullconfig.xml and delete that. (Back it up if needed).
3.) Start EMS.
4.) Pull the stream.
If still not working, please send me all the log files pertaining to this session, including your config.lua.
