My guess is that you are trying to send out an invalid file type (ie: Maybe AAC or WMA?). I personally have not tested these, but maybe that's the case. You obviously can't send out a word document on shoutcast though...

there are a couple video's in the list but it shouldnt change anything, also what should be in the content folder?
i have gone to
and it says that
my ip:8000 is Closed
Reason Given: Connection refused
More about this error: This essentially means that the port is open to the internet but has no services associated with it. There is no firewall protection on this port
although when i move my mouse over the server it says [0/32] users, and i am sendging bytes to the server
Is there anything specific that sould be in the content folder?

i have also been to the radio and it says there are no servers accosiated with it but it says 0/32 users, and it also says connection refused. anyhelp please?

Are you behind a firewall or router? If so, please post what kind.
14th March 2004, 09:21
I Have disabled norton dont know what affect that will have, and also i have disabled zone alarm
There is no firewall protection on this port

Norton can continue running, as I leave it on 24/7 and have no problem. Have you tried broadcasting since you disabled ZoneAlarm? And if you still are given "connection refused", do you have the Windows XP Firewall activated (if you are running xp, of course)?
If you are running XP firewall, please see:

even though making these new connections, should i still disable the xp firewall, now it says that another program is using the port ^o)

Don't disable the firewall, just open ports 8000 and 8001.
14th March 2004, 09:47
ye ive done that now, then i go to
and it should work, also it says something is using that port now :S
Also what should be in the content folder?
14th March 2004, 09:54
i tell yu what. post a link to the DNAS, and I will test it
14th March 2004, 09:56
My radio (http://184.108.40.206:8000/listen.pls)

I hear your (techno?) music playing.
This is the proper link
There shouldn't be a content folder.
Also, in the Winamp DSP, might want to go and change your server name and everything, should be in output, click yEllow pages

god man thanks alot, i can get it to work now, thanks, what do you need to be able to listen to it? bcos other people say it doesnt work?
14th March 2004, 10:22
They will need Winamp.
DNAS is the server program.
However, if someone would like to listen with RealPlayer/RealOne or Windows Media Player, then you will need to direct them to these files...
For the .asx (WMP).. put the following in a notepad document and then save it as <whatever>.asx
Of course, change things to fit your needs.
Note: This only works in WMP 7.1 and up
Note the trialing slash after "yourPORT"
For the .ram file to open a RealPlayer stream, enter the following into a notepad document:
Then save that as <whatever>.ram
Simply upload those to your website and link them and they will open in the appropriate player.

Thanks Alot, You Were a Big Help

when i upload the WMP one, it just displays Paul, when i clik on it, but it works on my desktop

Thanks. ; )
As for the .asx one, your host most likely does not have the correct Mimetypes to support it.
Try emailing your host, and asking them to set these mim-types:
After they do that, the file should work.

If All fails, could i just Add another link,
and tell them to dl it and 'open with' prefered Music Utility?
14th March 2004, 11:06
Yes, that should work also, unless they don't have anything else to listen to it with. Like if all they have is windows media player.
