Just to clarify, you want to relay a stream that's on a shoutcast server on 
your icecast server.  Right?

The above section only works if you're dealing with another icecast 2.x 
server.  It allows you to relay the entire server, hence the need for a 
specific password.  Yours is commented out anyway so it doesn't cause any

The mount line above specifies a mountpoint to tune into on the remote 
server.   You'd use this if you were relaying a stream from another icecast 
server.  Not having done what you're doing, I assume you'd simply set it to

This all looks fine.
