    Getting Started

    If you already have a running instance of the 2.x DNAS then there should not be any issues with replacing your current version with this new version.

    Refer to this tutorial for upgrade instructions

    If this is a new install then make sure to read through the information in 'Readme_DNAS_Server.html' and the related documentation as well as considering using the setup mode which should make it easier to get started over all prior 2.x builds (and 1.x based releases).

    Finally, all current copies of the documentation are included with the installer / archive and is the recommended point of reference for this release. The documentation at has also been updated.

    SSL Certificate Support

    Linux only.

    Add to sc_serv.conf


    (obviously needs to refer to the correct path & filename)

    Put the whole certificate chain in the .crt file, and only the key in the .key file.

    Add the ssl-assigned domain to the following lines:

    (obviously replace with the correct DNS)

    Reporting Issues

    If you do come across an issue with the DNAS, then please post in this thread with as much information as possible about what you're doing at the time, the system you are using and anything else which will make it easier to understand what is or isn't going on with your install.

    Issues relating to authhash management can be posted here.

    However, where sensitive information is concerned, we recommend using the dedicated support/help system instead:

    I can now connect the aacp stream again and there is no message about invalid authhashes. However the DNAS doesn't seem to be downloading any ads and playing them when the trigger is played. In the past the server would log when ads are downloaded from the server and when the trigger is played.

    Using on x64 linux.

      Hello, yes i confirm no ads are played with that version.


      • #4
        I've created a support request however didn't get a response yet for that issue.


        • #5
          So did I.
          I think they're working on it.


          • #6
            Hopefully. I asked if it makes sense to remove the ad trigger for now or if there will be a solution very soon. No response yet.

                      I Try the new build 750.

                      Till the published IP is the main server IP and not IP binded in the configuration file, and till the new directory publish all mountpoints in the same link (with differents formats in the same link)... the 2.6 is impossible to use in production.
                      All things that in the previous 2.5 (and the old YP system) worked fine.

                      And we are paying for a server that is not possible to use at the moment.
                      (or use only for a joke station, with a poor simple server and only 1 mountpoint)
                      All great streaming providers use to Bind a failover IP in the server. The best way to move the service to another server in fast way without change the streaming IP (in case of fail of the machine).

                        This version Shoutcast DNAS 2.6 (Build 750) crash my autoDJ script SC_TRANS, i use a previous version SHOUTcast Server v2.5.5.733 and its working great.


                        • #13
                          Radiomanager login

                          It would be great if I could login to .. but even though I have a valid account, it won't let me login, only gives a bad username/password error.
