[icecast] Helix into Icecast2 loopback

Hello all,

I am a little new to Linux so I would appreciate some assistance with this

I have been running a Helix server streaming RealAudio encoded content live
and on-demand for a while. For the live stream, I use the Real equivalent to
Ices which on the Helix platform is called SLTA. All the content on the
server is encoded as RealAudio.  

I have also successfully setup an Icecast2 server with Ices0.3 streaming
some test mp3s on a loop.

Now, what I would like to do is to take the live real audio feed from the
helix server and loop it back into an icecast mountpoint while being
rencoded to mp3 on the fly. 

Is there some utility that I can do this with? The server has no desktop
environment so I can't feed an icecast source client with a realplayer

It's a bit of a tricky one but any help would be appreciated.
