ICY 401 service unavailabel

Hi.I followed all the steps to set up streaming on home network but I still get CY 401 "Service unvailable" message which is strange because on the pc "sending" it says "Cipher response received" and the "receiving PC is able to see the http:// address but when I try to play it , it gives me the ICY 401 message.
Im new to this so please be patient with my lack of knowledge and sorry if I posted this in the wrong place.
Im using Windows XP on sending PC and Vista on receiving PC if that helps.
Please help.

Try re-starting services

I was having similar issues. Be sure the it is connected in the winamp dsp plug-in and then you may need to restart the shoucast service (one or more times). That's what it took for me any ways. Once I had rebooted the service and auto re-connected then the webpage status changed and I could listen to the stream with winamp on a different PC.

rockfm: look at the bottom of the Output -> Connection tab for why you're seeing that message.

how things work is that if there's no source to the DNAS server then clients will not be able to connect. once you've resolved the above issue then things will hoepfully work (as it indicates the connection between the two machines is at least ok).
