OK I did so and pasted the result (icxDriEO6Fgt.) in the icecast.conf 
file (and later in both icecast.conf and ices.conf) entries, but the 
error remains.... :-(
BTW, when starting icecast I have the following error message:
[05/Jan/2003:21:49:00] ERROR: Bind to udp interface failed, shutting 
down udp traffic
what does it mean?

Thank you again for answering and a happy new year....
