mmm... ok. well i got ices2 installed properly now (i hope) after some 
effort and help (cheers Michael for the prompt response!).

the goal is to get ices2 to stream to a peercast client on port 2768. but 
somehow things are still not going quite as planned. here is the log

idoru:/var/log# ices /usr/local/etc/ices.conf

down control thread.

at first i thought this might have something to do with iptables but thats 
not the case either. i doubt permisions are the problem since i get the same 
problem running both peercast and ices2 as root. peercast does work with 
other channels. so i am pretty sure the problem lies with my ices2.... hmph!

heres some of the relevant lines from the ices2.conf file


the pasword is corect for sure as is the port.

any sugestions? the combination peercast ices2 is just so cool i HAVE to get 
it to work. :-)
