25th June 2007, 17:37
I have a shoutcast server it is set up with all the basic settings but i cant get other people to conect to it. I can broadcast to it and listen to it though my network but say if I left it broadcasting I wouldnt be able to listen to it does any one know how to sort this out. My operating system is Windows XP Professional. I would also like to hook it up to a website soon but I would like to get it working under my IP address first.
Thanks for your help

The best thing to check is 'port forwarding' in your router to allow shoutcast requests in and your stream to go out. If you set shoutcast stream at 8000 you will have to open 8001 as well.
Another suggestion is use a free service like no-ip.com to map a domain name to your pc so that even if your ip address changes the domain name will still work. You can get cool names like MYCOOLMUSIC.SERVEMP3.COM etc.
That way you can tell your friends to go to the domain name and it will always work vs. an ip address that always changes.
