[Icecast] Cannot listen to shoutcast mount point

Hello, I'm having some difficulty getting Icecast working. I was able to 
use Icecast and shoutcast when they were both installed on the same 
Windows XP box, but when I moved icecast to a Linux box, the same 
icecast.xml configuration doesn't seem to work.

I am able to connect to Icecast using shoutcast streaming source and 
stream the mp3 source to Icecast, however whenever I attempt to listen 
to the stream at the specified mount point (/channel1), I get a 404 file 
not found error. \

The access.log shows:

"GET /channel1 HTTP/1.1" 404 109 "-" "NSPlayer/ WMFSDK/9.0" 0

The important part of my icecast.xml is listed below, from the original 
configuration, I changed the ip for the hostname and bind-address only.


and some information from my error.log (I set the logging level to 4)

Thanks in advance for any help,
