Hi:

Regarding your mirroring (i.e. relaying) question, there's two ways you
could do this.  The first would involve having a master icecast2 server,
which relays would pull from.  This would mean that if the master goes
down, the lot would go, however.  Alternatively, you could use ices2 to
send to each of the servers individually and avoid this problem.  This is
perhaps a bit clunky, but if there is a real chance that any of your
servers could go down, then this would avoid this problem.  Note that you
didn't say which OS you use so I don't know if you are able to use ices2
which is a unix program.

Geoff.
