Thanks Geoff. That got it.
I started with a new conf file for icecast from icecast.conf-dist, and set
up a relay.
http://ruby.chalmers.com.au:8000/4qir

and presto - it all working. Even SAM appears to see it now, giving be
correct listener stats.

That mountpoint bit has me foxed. very tricky.

Thanks
Robert
