View Full Version : Nothing Happens!
11th April 2005, 15:08
Ok, so i followed all the instructions and set up my router to forward 'shoutcast' on any IP, but when i click connect it just says 'connecting' for a while and then 'not connected' :(
I dont know how to find the long list of status messages that many people post - normally i'd look in it to tell me what the problem was, but i cant find it here.
Thanks in advance ;)

Wrong forum, you need Shoutcast support.
Sit tight for now and one of the mods will move you over.

When you are trying to connect your DSP [WinAMP] to the DNAS server, you want to see both -- the DSP does not give many [useful] messages, but the DNAS is very verbose.
If when you click connect, you do not see this reflected in your DNAS log [or in the GUI display], you have incorrect "connection" info in your DSP.
If both DSP and DNAS are on the same PC, the address should be 127.0.0.1 -- localhost will only work if you have a properly configured HOSTS file. The port is the same number that you can find in the DNAS config file beside PortBase=

(sorry for being a n00b at this)

A picture is worth a thousand....

I typed that in and it still isnt working :(

Connecting - Disconnecting - not connected
I changed both the address in the dsp_sc.ini and on the actual Shoutcast programme confiuguration to 127.0.0.1
Do i need to do anything else to forward the signal?
There's no DNAS log

You do not edit the DSP_SC.ini -- NEVER! Not no way, Not no how.
You configure the DSP thouugh WinAMP -- ALWAYS!
Your DSP may now be corrupt.
Your DNAS needs to be running of course, and you never put any IP in the sc_serv*.ini, anywhere.
SrcIP=Any, DestIP=Any ALWAYS

so what do i edit?
this is all i get!

Never touch any of the files you just showed me -- forget you even know about them.
First of all did you see the image I uploaded? That's the WinAMP ShoutCAST DSP, that's how you configure the source -- it is also where you are the DJ and you play MP3s
A ShoutCAST is two (2) programs.
Did you also download and install the server? -- the DNAS -- it would be found in C:\Program Files\SHOUTcast\ not in the WinAMP directory. This application is configured by editing it's config file.

Aaaah - i only downloaded the plugin, ill go and download both Shoutcast things and re-install everything so im back to square 1.
Ill see if that works - if not ill be back! ;)
(thanks for your help :))

now ive reinstalled everything and entered all the relevant information - i type in the password into the shoutcast plugin and it says 'invalid password'. I double chacked, tripple checked and the password was always incorredt (I did change it in the sc_serv.ini)
12th April 2005, 00:17
in fact when i change the password back to the default, it works fine
the address is still set to 'localhost'

I pressed the X button rather than killing the server and restarting ;)

<04/12/05@01:56:38> [yp_add] yp.shoutcast.com gave error (nak)
<04/12/05@01:56:38> [yp_add] yp.shoutcast.com gave extended error (Cannot see your station/computer (IP: 184.108.40.206:8000) from the Internet, disable Internet Sharing/NAT/firewall/ISP cache (Connection timed out))
What should i do with the router? :(
(sorry it seems like im talking to meself - it helps y'know)

Now you can visit the FAQs and all that stuff -- every broadcaster has had this problem and it's pretty easy to fix.
At this time Your ShoutCAST is perfectly setup, leave it alone.
I can't give you a step-by-step for this step -- you have to config your router to do port forwarding -- read your router's manual as well, they explain it best -- look for stuff about "what if I want to run a server?" You have some "learning" to do, but you must.

Ok, followed all the rules but it still doesnt work
heres the situation in my router:
And something else it told me to change
Sorry if your getting as bored as this as I am :(

I know this must be annoying - but ive been onto portforward.com and followed all the instructions. I still get the same errors - anyone had this before?
12th April 2005, 12:26
Everythings sorted, many thanks :)
12th April 2005, 12:38
See, taking your time helps :) it only works when you do it the right way.
