Thanks for the replies, Nope has nothing to do with automation stations. Just asking what the difference is between the two, there is some confusion based on what someone is telling me and I just want to check here with you guys before I go any further with discussions with the person, using or mentioning the word "relay" sets him off.
What I am trying to do is take a remote audio feed that would be connected to a slow dsl or cable connection and forward the audio to another shoutcast server that resides on a much faster connection like say an OC3 at a datacenter so that many listerners can connect at the same time to that audio feed without affecting the listening quality or bogging down the remote locations internet connection. The guy I am talking to is currently doing this. I feel that I understand how all this works but trying to communicate the right terminology to him is a bit hard and I think because of this he doesnt think I understand how it works.
I am fairly new to Shoutcast and Winamp but have successfully setup a feed but I am still learning. I would like to ask if someone could please explain in detail the differences between the two (Relay and Broadcast) that a beginner can understand. I am not good with abbreviations and etc that an expert would already know.
