As others have mentioned, port 80 will work in most cases except for 
some new routers/firewalls which check the content.

Port 80 is a great idea.  Virgin Radio use port 80 for all of their 
streams, and it makes the URL shorter!

Subject: [Icecast] How to reach listeners behind corporate firewall

Hi fellow icecast users,

I get more an d more complaints from listeners who are trying to listen 
our stream behind a firewall.
It seams that more and more companies block port 8000 in their 

Is there a solution for these cases ? I have somewhere read something 
streaming on port 80 instead of 8000.
Is this the solution ? Or ???

Thanks in advance,
