Broadcast on multiple ip address

I have a server, set up with a /28 (12 useable ips) ip address-range. I would like to broadcast at least 5 separate stream, on all different ips, but I would like to run all my streams on port 80, but the second shoutcast exits with the following error :

<01/18/09@01:17:58> [main] error opening source socket! FATAL ERROR! Some other p
rocess is using this port!

The important part of the config files :

SrcIP=ANY
PortBase=80
DestIP=92.61.XXX.XXX (every config file has diff. ip address)

The server is gentoo linux based

Please let me know what can I do to run this configuration.

Many thanks,
Balazs

that error means something else is running on your linux box on port 80. Do you run a web server on it as well?

Sure, Apache is running, but it is "sticked" to only one Ip, which is not used in any shoutcast configs. The first shoutcast starts up perfectly, while the apache is already running, so I don't think that is the real problem.

Thanks,

Are you trying to run shoutcast numerous times from the same computer using the same port?

Basically, the error you are getting means something else is already running on this port. You need to figure out what that is and kill it.

If you are running multiple instances of SHOUTcast on the same box, they all need to use different ports.
