Okies, first things first, I *have* searched for stuff related to this, but everything I can see is to do with having the *server* behind the firewall, not the DJ.
The situation is this:
I'm at college
, I'm part of a station that has a radio server that's on the internet. My college only has these ports open: 21,22,80,443 and the MSN messenger ports.
When i try do DJ to the server (we set portbase as 80), no joy. It sits there and will not connect. I can listen to the server just fine on port 80, but no outbound connections it seems.
Possibility: I'm stuck behind a transparent proxy. When i try to download stuff off the net, it sits and does nothing for a minute or so, downloads at 1000kb/s, then settles back to 120kb/s until download is finished.
I've SSH'd into one of my boxes at home, and set up a port tunnel for port 9500 on my machine here at college to go through the tunnel and point at port 80 on the shoutcast server, then when i set the shoutcast plugin client to broadcast to 127.0.0.1:9500, again, nothing happens, it just sits there and says "Connecting".
The server logs don't show any incoming connection from me.
Is there a way to tunnel the shoutcast client? Or any other way to fix my problems?
