Ok here's what I'm hoping to do and I understand if i'm asking too much.

I just want to stream a set of mp3 files so that folks on modems can hear them using winamp or (in a perfect world) RealPlayer.

i've set up an old 486 running debian 2.2r2 using the debian icecast packages (shout doing the streaming).

o far so good, with a bit of fiddling i had a stream that worked fine over the local network

remote users are unable to connect.

I understand that a better streamer might help. will such a streamer run on such an old machine?

are there any binaries for such a newer streamer?

would re-encoding my mp3's to a lower bitrate help? whats a good bitrate for modem users?

orry about the low quality of my understanding.
