Using OMX player to VIEW video stream

I have my RPi successfully streaming video from a webcam 640X480 @ 15fps. Now, I want to use OMXPlayer to VIEW that stream on yet another RPi.

I have tried command lines like:

omxplayer -o hdmi tcp://192.168.1.214:5000

But all I get is "have a nice day" - hardly descriptive of what I need to do in order to make things work.

Has anyone done this?
