Hi everybody, just a new face showing up looking for a little help 
configuring IceCast.
Just installed the software with a few other programs in an attempt to 
start off my own internet radio station.

Using SimpleCast to take the line-in and stream it to IceCast, which 
in-turn does the obvious and streams it to the internet.

I'm looking at just creating a station of just 5 max users (for now) and 
going to increase from there till I can find the limit my bandwidth can 
hold. Though I've run into a bit of an error. Every player I load up in 
attempt to listen to the radio, whether it's a remote client or local 
client, I get a syncing error. Could this be caused by my 
firewall/router setup? I've already forwarded the port I have set in the 
configuration, but I'm a little lost.

Here is the configuration I am using:


<icecast>
    <limits>
        <clients>6</clients> <!-- since it seems SimpleCast is using up 
a client spot... -->
        <sources>2</sources>
        <threadpool>5</threadpool>
        <queue-size>524288</queue-size>
        <client-timeout>30</client-timeout>
        <header-timeout>15</header-timeout>
        <source-timeout>10</source-timeout>
        <burst-on-connect>1</burst-on-connect>
        <burst-size>65535</burst-size>
    </limits>

    <authentication>
        <source-password>changeme</source-password>
        <relay-password>changeme</relay-password>
        <admin-user>admin</admin-user>
        <admin-password>changeme</admin-password>
    </authentication>

    <hostname>evillight.shacknet.nu</hostname>
    <listen-socket>
        <port>26487</port>
    </listen-socket>


    <fileserve>1</fileserve>

    <paths>
        <basedir>./</basedir>
        <logdir>./logs</logdir>
        <webroot>./web</webroot>
        <adminroot>./admin</adminroot>
        <alias source="/" dest="/status.xsl"/>
    </paths>

    <logging>
        <accesslog>access.log</accesslog>
        <errorlog>error.log</errorlog>
        <playlistlog>playlist.log</playlistlog>
          <loglevel>4</loglevel>
          <logsize>10000</logsize>
        <logarchive>1</logarchive>
    </logging>

    <security>
        <chroot>0</chroot>
    </security>
</icecast>


Very appreciative of the help. And, thanks in advance to everyone.
