neuralnet: you were most likely experiencing the v2 YP connectivity issues which were partially fixed between the time of your posts and then fixed totally an hour after you posted.

how things work with the current DNAS is if the YP connection cannot be established when the stream is started then it will keep blocking all client connections as it's in a state it cannot cope with (this is changed for the next build whenever i can finish it off). as a result, players like VLC show the login prompt when the stream won't allow the player to connect which i VLC's case, it assumes that it needs to try a HTTPS connection (which SHOUTcast doesn't support) which it needs login details for and that is why you get that.

the same can happen if the authhash is invalid or has not been specified.
