Is ShoutCast v2 was improved for people behind a Firewall ?


I'm Michael, a french user of ShoutCast v2.

Sorry in advance for my poor english !

I use ShoutCast v2 since my partner "marci" was compatible with it, in march 2012, and I've seen some very strage ip adress.

In fact, ths port is the strange part of the IP. On ShoutCast v2, the listeners port's IP has 5 digits, and is always changed on each connexion.

examples :


So, I asked myself it ShoutCast v2 is optimised for route people behind a firewall to a "non bloked ports", because I use a windows media server only for the "mms" protocol, and I would like to know if ShoutCast v2 is better than mms protocol for route the people blocked by their firewall.

I hope you will understand my point of view, because it's not easy to explain a technical problem in english, when you don't speak english very well ! I learned english at school, but I never listened to my teacher :-(

have a nice day
