I'm assuming I have enough upstream bandwidth because streaming to 
multiple listeners on my old computer works fine. Both computers are on 
the same network behind a router on a broadband connection.

I'm not really sure what to look for in the logs. What log do I need to 
look at, access or error? The error log is set to debug level and I can 
see the listener count go up and down, to as high as 3.

Cheers, Eric
