View Full Version : what ports do u need open to run shoutcast

7th May 2003, 15:33
ok i have a shoutcast server which is behind a very strict firewall

so far, the net can access the server only on port 8000

the server can access the net on port 80

i thought this is all you need, port 8000 for people to stream

port 80 to connect to the shoutcast directory.

what other ports do i need for people to listen??? because i have this in my log:

<05/07/03@15:58:48> [dest:] starting stream (UID: 22)[L: 1]{A: WinampMPEG/2.9}(P: 0)
<05/07/03@15:59:10> [dest:] connection closed (0 seconds) (UID: 22)[L: 0]{Bytes: 222690}(P: 0)

people disconnect immediantly from the stream

You need portBase (default is 8000) for sure and portBase+1 if you're going to have folks outside your firewall source the DNAS.

32kbps 22kHz mono coming in well.

I experienced no buffering nor clipping for 2+ minutes.
