[icecast] mount point

i am no expert, but i believe that the mount points are controlled by the
streaming client (in your case shout). When the client attaches to the
server, it creates the mount point on the server.

I am using ices 2 (instead of shout), and in my ices.conf file (or on the
command line), I specify the mount point. In my case, I have 2 shell
scripts that I run at bootup that create 2 mount points, one is a 192k
stream (mount point ices192 specified on the command line i.e. ices -m
ices192 -all the other options) for my lan, and another 56k stream (mount
point ices56) which is accessible by internet users.

I hope this helps clear things up.

Now I know someone out there is going to claim, "Well then, UNIX is intuitive,
because you only need to learn 5000 commands, and then everything else follows
from that! Har har har!"
