I own a Windows remote PC that I use for video surveillance and a Windows client PC, connected throught a Gigabit ethernet.
What light server+client software can I use to listen to the audio OUTPUT (not mic, for some reasons I need to redirect the audio output) of that PC from the client PC with uncompressed/perfect audio quality, with a single-click?  (after setting the server obviously)

You could just RDP (remote desktop) into it and in the settings tell it to push the audio to your computer.

I already use RDP for it but when I activate audio redirection all the DirectShow audio capture devices (the mic of the webcams) disappear.
I think that this bad behaviour is by design.
I need a solution to redirect audio while connected via RDP without deactivating the DirectShow capture devices.

id go with vlc (http://www.videolan.org/). I've used this to redirect audio/video/screen over rtp:// and other stuff

I've been using LogMeIn Free for many years, but the Free version doesn't support audio. In order to get audio, you'll need to go for the Pro (not free) version, which supports HD video and sound streaming:

I haven't tried the Pro version recently (and don't recollect if I ever did audio when I did try Pro), but they offer a free trial, and based on my many years of really good experience with the Free version, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Pro version. Worth a shot. Regards, Joe
