I seem to have the basics running as well as authorization working with password and username access using htpasswd.
A few questions.
Config file, fileserver set to 0 or 1 to turn it off? I tried both and still get a tonne of people connecting under "file connections" almost immediately after I boot up icecast server.
Listener connections states 6 on the server, but on the web admin pages it shows only me listening. Plus, nobody has the password and username to actually listen in, which do seem to work properly as I tested them.
Connections is showing as 30 but I set both the global and stream limit to 8, huh?
And does these numbers on the icecast window truly reflect total strangers connecting to a server I didn't make public, and didn't list with any YP? How do I keep all these people from connecting if the authentication system is not doing it?
A 2nd issue....
I have 3 computers in my house. Comp 1 is serving up icecast as well as the source client.
Comp 2 is my computer which I tried connecting using my WAN address (not my LAN address) and it all works, authentication, everything works great.
Comp 3 authenticates on the web page "click to listen" link, but when winamp loads up it asks for the username and password, over and over and over no matter how many times I try to enter it. I tried creating multiple user accounts, etc... nothing seems to let comp 3 connect, it just repeatedly asks for authentication in winamp itself.
