Hi Mike,

Could be a FreeBSD Ports problem?  
It seemed to me that t was compiled with that feature.

erver_info would mention "Using crypt" (or something like that, is not "on" now)

I tried compiling icecast2 with --without-crypt (not sure if that is the
correct option, i did not see it in ./configure --help, but i could be blind =)
but that did not help.

In nutshell, i never got shout to "talk" to icecast2 on that FreeBSD.
It always complained about bad password (no matter what i put).
I checked for extra spaces and everything i could, i had no luck.

After i compiled the "old" icecast (from the ports) it all worked fine.

Best regards,
David Correa
