Looks like that was the case - this is the first time I've seen this

This must be an old document. Both programs have been discontinued for
some time. Ices is the recommended streamer for pre-encoded content, and
has been for a couple of years.

To clarify. Are you saying that you can listen on the machine running the

Ordinarily, all you'd have to do is specify that the stream is public and
that yp.icecast.org be a directory server and it would get listed.
