hello,
I need to set up icecast2 as indipendent server, I mean I have my own
domain and IP address where I'm going to install icecast2, my server
have to be able to authenticate every SourcesSide (eg: winampa, darkice)
but can't udersand something, as like as difference between "master server"
and "relay server" and, in my darkice confinguration file, where i have
to put "username" to authenticate; i have to offer streaming service on
my machine to more than 2 people with username/password only.

<p><p>here's my (mistaken) icecast.xml

<p><p><icecast>
