Windows 10 Fall Creators Update causing Shoutcast connection problem

Hi,

First of all sorry for the long post.


I am wondering if anyone else has come across this problem
since having 'Windows 10 Fall Creators Update' installed.

I had just set up a Dell Latitude latop with Window 10 installed, to run as my
shoutcast server and everything has been running well over the
past week or so. Until the other day when Windows 10 decided to
download and install 'Windows 10 Fall Creators Update'.

Since then it has now made my streams inaccessible!

Even though Winamp is running and the DSP plugin Status is showing that
data is being sent and the Shoutcast DNAS servers are also showing that the
streams are up and running too.

But when I try and connect to one of the streams from another machine
via WinAMP. WinAMP shows me it is 'Connecting' to the stream, and if I
look on the Shoucast DNAS server it show the connection. But WinAMP
then shows me that it has 'Timed Out' and does not play the stream.

Also if I look at my shoutcast stat's it shows me that there is a 'Current Listener'
but when WinAMP fails to connect, the 'Current Listener' is still shown connected.
So if I then try and connect again, it fails and the 'Current Listener' count goes up
by 1. If I keep doing this the 'Current Listener' count goes all the way up
until it hits my Max Listeners, and then WinAMP states that the server is full.

So it looks like Shoutcast does not allow the connection to the stream and it
does not clear the 'Current Listener' count after the failed connection attempts.


I have checked to make sure all my ports that my streams use are open, which
they are. As I Host and serve from my laptop and don't use a 3rd party hosting
service.

Luckily a few days before the 'Windows 10 Fall Creators Update'
was downloaded and installed I had taken a Drive Image, so I restored that
back onto my Laptop and it is now all working again.

The problem now is that Windows 10 automatically downloads and installs
updates, even though you can delay them etc.. it wont stop them indefinitely.
So at some point it will update to 'Windows 10 Fall Creators Update' and then
I will be back to the same position I was in before I restored the drive image.

I have, after looking on net, found that you can stop windows updating automatically(see link below).
But I am not 100% sure that this will work, but I have done what it suggested
and will have to wait and see if it does stop update downloads and installs.
The only problem will be that my machine will not receive any updates including
security updates which I am a bit wary off not getting.

So I am wondering if anyone else has run into this problem or does anyone
know what exactly changed with this 'Windows 10 fall Creators Update' that
may be causing this problem with Shoutcast?


Things I have looking into:

Making sure all required PORTS are OPEN
within Windows Firewall and my Router.

Windows 10 and Shoutcast dropping

Not sure if we have a similar problem. I have been using Windows 10 (never updated it though). I installed the latest version of Winamp and the DSP Plug In and like you everything has been running well for the first week or so. Now however, it appears that shoutcast in dropping and re-setting (I have the auto re-connect turned on) about every 5 minutes or so. Even when no one is listening.

I am also sending the audio directly from the soundcard and apparently not using Winamp as far as I can tell. Below is what I am being told from the DSP Program. Any ideas anyone?

OK,

I think I may have found the culprit after much trial and error and uninstalling programs etc..

I had BitDefender (free antivirus) software running on my machine, which once I uninstalled I was able to connect to all of my streams. So it must of been blocking the ports.

I've now re-installed the Windows updates, including 'Windows 10 Fall Creators Update'
and it all seems to still be streaming OK, so it looks probable that my first assuptions
where incorrect that it was this update that was causing the problem.

I am currently still testing to make sure the blocking does not start happening again,
but fingers crossed I have it all sorted now!


I will post back later to give an update, after I've tested some more.
