Hi! I'm having this problem with Shoutcast Dnas (the ip differs from mine). Anybody knows how to solve this?! I checked the Help Section, but it didn't solve my problem, please, if anybody knows help me!
06/27/01@00:00:46> [yp_add] yp.shoutcast.com gave error (nak)
<06/27/01@00:00:46> [yp_add] yp.shoutcast.com gave extended error (Connection refused 22.214.171.124:8000 check shoutcast.com troubleshooting)
Ps: Shoutcast can be used with Win 98?

Yes Windows 98 supports SHOUTcast fine. This taken directly from the the SHOUTcast online docs:
My server gets this error: "[yp_add] yp.shoutcast.com gave error (nak)" -- What's wrong with my server?
Answer: The SHOUTcast directory has refused to publish your directory entry for one of a number of reasons. Your server should have an extended error message as well which might correspond with one of the following:
* NOTE: If the extended-error message is accompanied by an IP address, check to make sure it's the same IP address and port you're running the SHOUTcast server from. If it's different, then something is changing your IP address before it gets to us. This is usually because of internet
sharing devices or software. DSL routers and cable modems typically are the culprit, as are corporate firewalls, NAT devices, or web caches. We are working on a solution for the web caches, but if any of the other devices are changing your IP, you will *have* to follow the instructions
under Connection refused: below to solve your problem. Listeners on the internet will not be able to listen to your server until you fix the problem.
See Connection refused:
* Connection refused: This typically means your server is not visible from the Internet. The usual cause is that you're located behind a firewall or NAT device (this includes internet sharing programs like Sygate, Wingate,
etc.). These devices block incoming connections to your network. You need to configure these devices to map port 8000 on the device to port 8000 on the computer running the SHOUTcast server. If you have changed the SHOUTcast DNAS configuration to have different values for the ports, you
should map that port instead. The important detail is that the SAME PORT YOU BROADCAST ON MUST BE THE PORT MAPPED FROM THE OUTSIDE. That is, you can't map port 99 to port 8000 and expect it to work. It won't.
You either have a firewall problem you're trying to use some sort of internet connection sharing software. Hope that helps.
In addition to club's info here is some more for you:
T8. Help I get the following connection refused error
"<05/16/01@20:57:11> [yp_add] yp.shoutcast.com gave extended error (Connection refused IP:PORT check shoutcast.com troubleshooting)" and the IP reported is not the IP of the machine with the DNAS.
This is ONLY if the IP reported does NOT match that of the machine with the DNAS. Basically what is happening is that in order for SHOUTcast.com to list you the DNAS sends out some info on port 80. Port 80 is also used for websurfing so if your ISP is implementing a web cache, web proxy etc. then the IP that gets reported will be that off the cache, proxy etc. Don't lose hope and start bitching at your
ISP yet there maybe a cure. The kind people at Nullsoft have provided an additional port for the information to be reported on that will get around the cache, proxy etc. Port 666 will do the trick. To setup the DNAS to use port 666 you will need to edit sc_serv.ini. Open sc_serv.ini in the text editor of your choice (those running the GUI version press the "Edit Config" button. In the file find line 116. It should look like:
Change it to:
Save the file sc_serv.ini and restart the DNAS and pray that the problem will disappear.
