Q: I don't know how to make a URL, can you teach me how?
A: Please enjoy link bot.
DNAS link: http://yourDNASip:yourDNASport
Listen link: http://yourDNASip:yourDNASport/listen.pls
Replace yourDNASip with the ip of the DNAS (SHOUTcast server) and yourDNASport with the DNAS port (default is 8000)
Also, if your router doesn't support local loopback then machines on the same lan as the DNAS (you) need to use the lan ip of the DNAS to connect/listen.
Machines not on the same lan as the DNAS (the rest of the world) need to use the real, world-visible ip of the DNAS to connect/listen.
for more information. Scroll down and look for the section titled:
3. Private Address Space
How to find your ip address (Part I).
How to find your ip address (Part II).
Finally, you can get a static name, such as foo.bar.com (not as cool as that, though
) from http://www.no-ip.com
or one of the other myriad of Dynamic DNS Services
Then, your links would be:
DNAS link: http://foo.bar.com:yourDNASport
Listen link: http://foo.bar.com:yourDNASport/listen.pls
Q: Also, how do I access this "online admin" area?
A: Visit your DNAS by one of the following methods:
1) From the DNAS machine use DNAS link: http://localhost:yourDNASport
2) From another machine on the same network: DNAS link: http://lanDNASip:yourDNASport
3) From another machine not on the same network: DNAS link: http://yourDNASip:yourDNASport
One there, click the "Admin" link and login.
Username = "admin" (no quotes)
Password = defined in the DNASs sc_serv.ini/conf configuration file. Default section shown below:
; Password. While SHOUTcast never asks a listener for a password, a
; password is required to broadcast through the server, and to perform
; administration via the web interface to this server. This server should
; consist of only letters and numbers, and is the same server your broadcaster
; will need to enter in the SHOUTcast Source Plug-in for Winamp. THIS VALUE
; CANNOT BE BLANK.
