Hi Geoff,

I'm a bit confused...

After reading the docs, I was under the impression that icecast2 does 
not do on demand relaying?
I did a google search, found this (well, it's a year ago)

Also, in the relaying section of the icecast documentation:

There was no references to aliasing anymore, nor on-demand broadcasting

And quoting the documentation on the relaying section:
"When the slave server is started, it will connect to the master server 
located at and will begin to relay only the mountpoint 

That gave me the impression that it's not really on-demand

Could anyone clarify the situation? :-)
