[icecast] Icecast2 and IceS2 client problem

Dear All:

I have Icecast2 and IceS2 successfully built and installed on a Debian 3.0 
system. After tinkering with the config files, both applications are running 
and seem to be talking to each other without problem. However, when I try to 
connect with a client, I run into problems: with Winamp 2.8, I get an [HTTP/1.0 
200 OK] message, but then the stream is apparently dropped before buffering. 
With XMMS 1.2.7, the client connects, the stream is buffered, but then dropped, 
and rebuffered, ad infinitum. Any ideas??

from logfiles:

( is a debian system running xmms, and is a winXP system 
running Winamp 2.8. is the Icecast server listening on 8000, and 
33300 is the IceS socket, presumeably)

the winamp client/windows machine has established a persistent connection, and 
lots of acks go flying by on a tcpdump, but nothing happens. the debian/xmms 
client tries for a while before giving up (but without sending a fin...). I 
should probably mention that both of these clients have no trouble connecting 
to an Icecast 1.3.12 stream, nor do they have a problem with static fileserving 
on the Icecast2 server.

thanks in advance.
