Doing a quick Google on this error seemed to indicate thatt this is 
probably a configuration issue.

First double-check that your darkice and icecast config files match were 

2.  Is there an error in your Icecast error log?  If you see no evidence of 
your attempt at all then this means that your connect attempt is not even 
reaching Icecast.

Others may have other suggestions.
