That's not very much information to be going on.
Seeing as I cannot see your computer or what you've done so far I can't really tell you what has gone wrong.
To get the answers you require you need to give a detailed account of what you have done so far then you'll get a more helpful reply to get your solution.

rite im using the shoutcast witn winamp.in the shoutcast source in output ive put in my ip address and port 8000
and set it all up but when u push connect it just says connecting. im not too sure if ive set up the config rite in the ini file. ( it would be better if it just had the source and not all the writing saying what to do)
ive configered my firewall to aceept the port. and now im lost. ive read all the tutorials but there no help coz ive already done what they say. also does it say when conected or just connecting?

You didn't read the tutorials nick@ss gave you. If you had done so then you wouldn't be having any problems. Look through the lazy set up link in my signature.

If you had read the instructions you would know what it was. I assume you that if you had changed the original password=changeme (in DNAS config) to your own password then you would not have to ask what your server password was. In case you are wondering about the username it is and always stays as admin.

its connected but i dont know if it works coz it aint listed in the shoutcast station list.and it dosent come up when i search for it.

No it's not getting outside of your computer. This thread really belongs in the Technical Support part but no doubt someone will move it over soon.
What does your DNAS log say?

Once again, I urge you to read thoroughly before posting. http://www.sp0rky-n00b.co.uk/localcast.htm
Follow these instructions and you cannot go wrong.

1 more question. how do u know if u got a router coz i aint got a clue. im using bt braudband. all this stuff is very confusing.+ i got norton anti-virus which alsis a firewall.. ive got xp but not service pack 2. so do i still have another firewall?
30th August 2005, 14:16
You probably have a BT Voyager 205 which is a router. It's a black box with flashing green lights on it. You need to configure it to allow port 8000.
Norton needs configuring too. XP has a built-in firewall which can be disabled it's not configurable before SP2.
If you've set up a static IP to your computer http://portforward.com/networking/staticip.htm
then it's easy to forward ports to your router. If you're brave enough to use telnet, tell me your static IP and I'll give you copy-paste instructions as I probably use the same router as you.

is there a way to get round a poxy coz ive tryed everything but still no job. + i forgot to mention i got 2 comps networked together if thats any help
30th August 2005, 15:52
In any case the pc you are broadcasting from needs to be seen from the outside world. If you're trying to stream from your pc to another pc then to the router you're going to have to do even more port forwarding.
