no, not a lame problem. darkice can't connect to your server. either the 
host name or the port or the source login password is incorrect.

try to telnet to your server manually:

telnet hostname port

and then say:

SOURCE password /mount

and an empty line. if it says "OK", there is indeed a problem in darkice.
