I was searching from Shoutcast technical support about how to setup my system for broadcasting.
I downloaded the plug in, and the server .gui.
1) Server configuration file is EMPTY, should have any set of instructions written there to change them?
2) I'm behind a router, my I.P. address is 192.168.24.1 and my internet I.P. is 184.108.40.206 and my system OS is windows98. I will find out how to give access to the 8000 port through my router setup tomorrow. But problem is that i had the address setup on the plug in as it was "localhost", a friend of mine tried to connect and on the first time an error msg came up on his side "Server Not Found". I thought it must be because i haven't give access to the port through my router yet. Then i changed the address from the plug in to my local I.P. address and then my m8 couldn't find the server at all. Question here is what should i fill up on the address field?
3) Question: can anyone give me steps about what i should do to make it work ok and broadcast normally? after browsing to all those threads here and at shoutcast forums i got bit confused with the whole thing...
My housemate could listen me but that was within the network neighberhood... could not make it broadcast outside the network, i assume thats because of the router blocking that port BUT, since i changed the localhost from plug-in properties, my other friend who tried to connect couldn't and the error msgs where different when i changed the "address" on the plug-in.
Thanks for any help to the n00b
P.S.: i'm also getting some errors on server tab:

Now i know that that could be because i haven't give access to the port through the router but thought to post it in case someone can get some feedback from it.
