Great, thanks for the info... However... Like you said, I can't find much on
Here's the section from the icecast_full.xml file...
        <!-- Aliases: treat requests for 'source' path as being for 'dest'
             May be made specific to a port or bound address using the
             and "bind-address" attributes.
        <alias source="/foo" dest="/bar"/>
        <!-- Aliases: can also be used for simple redirections as well,
             this example will redirect all requests for http://server:port/
             the status page
        <alias source="/" dest="/status.xsl"/>

Anyone have any more information on how to bind an alias to a specific port?

That would be nice, wouldn't it? Hey, it's already implemented! That's why
we have port-specific aliases. They're not really well documented, patches
to explain this a bit better would be appreciated. I'm also not sure how
well tested this is, I know I've never tried to use shoutcast, because...
well, I'd much rather use icecast :-)

Anyway, I think this should be possible just by configuring icecast, no new
features needed.
