Hi everyone, today I am posting for help on something that isnt really programming related. Me and my friend are setting up a SHOUTcast server to broadcast ourselves. But we are having problems: I install winamp set up the SHOUTcast plugin and install the SHOUTCAST DNAS, my question here(very noob one) where it sais adress im not sure what to write(i tried my ip adress but it doesnt work) can someone provide some information an what to do to get this server up and running. Thanks to all who respond, Francis... // lessbread edit: changed title to reflect the question

I moved this to Multiplayer and Networking, since the subject is related to networking - it really doesn't fit anywhere and the lounge didn't quite seem appropriate.

First off, you need the password for the DNAS you've installed. I can't remember the default password (might be 'password') but it is in the sc_serv.ini file anyway.

With this set up and the DNAS running, you need to enter the settings in the winamp plugin. Assuming the DNAS is running on the same machine as winamp, the address should be localhost, and assuming you haven't changed the default port of the DNAS, the port should be 8000. The password will be as you discovered/set above.

That should be the bare minimum config to get it working. You may still need to tweak some of the settings to provide a good stream and of course open port 8000 on any firewalls/routers you have if you want people to tune in from outside of your personal network (if you have one). [smile]

All the best,
ViLiO
