Did you check the manual for your software if it explains that error.
I'm not familiar with this commercial software.

Maybe, maybe not. Hard to tell from an very vague description. Did you 
check the error.log for your icecast server?

I/We can help you with the icecast part. I can't help you with the 
commercial software (SAM). For help with that software contact the 
software vendor.

Maybe, if you are able to describe the situation in a way that people 
here on the mailing-list can get an idea what might be wrong.



PS: There is also an IRC channel #icecast on irc.freenode.net - Feel 
free to join, but be very patient for answers. There's not always 
someone looking at their screen.

PPS: If you want to find out how to ask questions in a way that gets 
more useful answers I recommend:
