I've got a redhat linux 9.0 box and I've made sure Apache is out of the
way, so that I can do what I really want to do, which is to run Icecast
on port 80 of the server, so listeners can grab the stream even through
the toughest firewall. I have been wrestling with this for a number
of hours, consulted a few experts, and am coming up zilch.
Theoretically, I should be able to just run Icecast on Port 80 by
specifying Port 80 in the icecast.xml file like so:
...but this is the error I get:
Could not create listener socket on port 80
Server startup failed. Exiting
I was told that I should try running icecast as root. Try doing that,
and you get an error:
WARNING: You should not run icecast2 as root
Use the changeowner directive in the config file
Have googled for any sort of step-by-step instructions for something
even a little bit similar to this, but to no avail.
