View Full Version : Wifi and ShoutCast
14th June 2005, 23:23
Alright, here's the problem.
I'm using a wireless router, and my computer has a wireless-G PCI card. I set the admin password and the server password to be the same. Now, i use JetCast to act as my broadcasting program in cooperation with the ShoutCast DNS server on my computer. Everytime I try to start my service, it comes up with "<06/14/05@18:17:06> [source] invalid password from letmein 127.0.0.1"
now, I changed the IP address to my router's IP address, and therefore the IP address of the modem I have downstairs. For some reason, this still isn't working. Can anyone help me on this?
THanks much in advance!

If SHOUTcast and JetCast are on the same PC, then 127.0.0.1 should work fine for a source-to-server connection. Passwords are case-sensitive. Try setting just a broadcast password and do away with the Admin password if they are one and the same. Maybe that will work...

Alright, it works now. Except no one can hear it.
And the Shoutcast Directory can't add me, because of this:
"<06/14/05@20:37:49> [yp_add] yp.shoutcast.com gave error (nak)
<06/14/05@20:37:49> [yp_add] yp.shoutcast.com gave extended error (Cannot see your station/computer (IP: 22.214.171.124:8000) from the Internet, disable Internet Sharing/NAT/firewall/ISP cache (Connection timed out))"
I currently have the Router Admin Panel open for my router--I've disabled the firewall as of now. I have no idea on what to do.

Okay - you're making good progress. The NAK error you're seeing is a common problem. Disabling the firewall is actually not going to solve the problem. You will need to map port 8000 *through* your router to the private IP address of your PC.
Find the make/model of your router.
Go to http://www.portforward.com and find the router there. Follow the instructions for forwarding the port. You only need to forward port 8000 if your SHOUTcast source will always be running on the same PC as the SHOUTcast server.
Post back if you run into difficulties, but hopefully you'll get through the portforward.com instructions and then you'll be "live"

Alrighty then---I did the port forwarding.
Now it just won't work at all. I come back with the same
"[source] invalid password from letmein 127.0.0.1"
The port forwarding didn't do anything---the program wasn't on the program list that's with my router.
I just reset the config file, ready to start anew.

I just reset the config file, and changed everything to what I want it to be--PortBase: 8000
Password (i kept as changeme)
and my SrcIP is 127.0.0.1
Do you think I should put my router's IP address into it, instead of 127.0.0.1?
I'm now getting the NAK error once again, and I think this might solve it.
What do you guys think?

The NAK error is simply that the SHOUTcast directory cannot get past your router to access the DNAS on your PC. When you launch your DNAS, it "touches" SHOUTcast. When it does that, SHOUTcast tries to "reply" to the IP the touch came from.
You haven't forwarded port 8000 through your router to your PC, so the reply fails and you get the error.
So no, putting your router's IP into your DSP Source plugin won't make this error go away. You need to forward Port 8000 from the Public IP on your router to the Private IP of your SHOUTcast server. Until you do that, nobody on the Internet will be able to listen to your stream. Hope this makes sense.

Alright, so the public IP is the one going from the modem into my router.
(I already know this one)
Now, the problem I have is with the private IP. My Local IP is 192.168.1.1--the default of most routers.
Now, it will allow me to forward ports 8000 and 8001, but only from the IP address "192.168.1.(enter number here)."
I tried portforward.com, but alas, it still isn't working.
Should I do port triggering on this? I'm so lost on this. I'll ask my friend, and see what I should do for this. Any more help that you all can give me will be greatly appreciated.

Actually, the 192.168.1.1 is most likely your router's private IP - not your PC's private IP.
On Windows 2000/XP, click Start... Run...
Type CMD and click OK.
In the black DOS window that opens, type
You will now see your computer's IP address
Whatever appears in the "xxx" position is the number you enter in your router Port Forwarding config.
Now the router knows that when a request comes in on the public IP for port 8000, it is to forward that request to the private IP address of the PC running SHOUTcast.
