One of the example configs distributed with icecast has an example of 
listener auth.  What exactly are you having trouble with ?

You need to at a minimum :

1. supply a <mount> section named the same as the one you are connecting 
with your source client
2. add an <authentication> section to #1
3. Use the web-interface to add/delete users (you'll need to connect your 
source client first before you can do this)
