You could try setting up a Dynamic DNS to use for that. Then port forwarding in your router...

Not just your router, but your comp?

also got to disable your routers firewall on that port. If it has one internally.

Also got to disable your comps on this as well. Are you running XAMPP? Realize that if your chosing to do this over the TONS of free and low priced servers (wish someone had told me this at the beginning) your turning your box into a server. Theirs no need to do this to stream.

Just verifying you know this.

No im not using xamp at all. And yes iv port forwarded at portforward.comYeah I know there is no need to turn my box into a server.

Ok. Well if you know, but want to do it anyway..... Hell yeah! Streamer of my own level of sanity. I like it!

First, paste your conf. file, and also if your doing it yourself, you want to use radiotoolbox.com (Jkeys site) alot.

Make sure when you paste your config, you leave your password blotted out of it.

ok here is my config file

<!-- This config file contains a minimal set of configurable parameters, and mostly just contains the things you need to change. We created this for those who got scared away from the rather large and heavily commented icecast.xml.dist file. -->
<icecast> <limits> <sources>2</sources> </limits> <authentication> <source-password>ron23</source-password> <relay-password></relay-password> <admin-user>admin</admin-user> <admin-password></admin-password> </authentication>
<hostname>localhost</hostname> <listen-socket> <port>8001</port> </listen-socket> <fileserve>1</fileserve> <paths> <logdir>./logs</logdir> <webroot>./web</webroot> <adminroot>./admin</adminroot> <alias source="/stream" dest="/status.xsl"/> </paths> <logging> <accesslog>access.log</accesslog> <errorlog>error.log</errorlog> <loglevel>3</loglevel> <!-- 4 Debug, 3 Info, 2 Warn, 1 Error --> </logging></icecast>

but the port 8001 is not open, me and a friend have done everything to port porward
the port, i'm trying to use http://hyper-radio.zapto.org to keep the ip as it is with port 8001
but with no success, i am using winamp and edcast to stream..............

bigger screenshot. Resolutions too low.

If port 8001 is closed, you need to open it !!

honestly, if your running your own server, you want to keep it organized. I would go by evens, so you can keep track of which ports to open (start at 8100, open 8010 and 8011.)

I suggest buying a cloud server/VPS. Most hosting companies only give you Dynamic DNS if you own some kind of company.
