How do I choose default stream ?

I have a shoutcast server on linux with 8 incoming configured streams.
When i enter my url in winamp:
ip: port
without a station name, like this:
ip: port/station1
it plays stream 1 automatically.
Is there a way for me to choose what is the default stream id when this happens ?
Thank you!

No, I think that's just a inherited function from the old DNS versions.

it defaults to stream #1 as that ensures expected compatibility with the legacy 1.x DNAS and when there is only one stream running (despite multiple being configured) then the mount point is effectively ignored as it also maintains the legacy 1.x DNAS behaviour.

so there is no way to pick a different default and there is no plan to implement such an option.
