  1> Master/slave relay should work for you.. something i found in the
version i am using you have to define the mount name in the master
config file for it to be relayed to the slaves relays.  The current
relesed version supose to resolve this issue, I still trying to
compile it on my linux systems to test it out.

2> For non static IP address you can use a dynamic hosting service
like http://www.dyndns.org.  If you really want to put a server out in
the field.

3> The icecast servers cant push a stream to another server, you can
set up a stream translator to basically listen to the stream and to
source it out to a server. We have done this because allot of the
commercial available icecast hosting you cant set up as a slave  and
can only source to it.

4> I found if you look in the error.log of the slave it will tell you
why it not working.
