Dear friends,

I use IceCast2_Win32_2.3.2 version (under Win98 lol) and I have one simple question :)  So, my server stay as relay. I have two streams – main, from 172.17.16.34 (for example) and reserve from 219.19.29.98 (for example too). Mount points have same names on both streams. Main task is: if main stream is down, relay should be switched to reserve stream, and, then main stream is up, relay should be switched to main stream. My question: can I use “fallback” option as <fallback-server> in <relay> section? I think config file will be next:

    <relay>
        <server>172.17.16.34</server>
        <fallback-server>/219.19.29.98</fallback-server>
        <fallback-override>1</fallback-override>
        <port>8000</port>
        <mount>/main</mount>
        <local-mount>/main</local-mount>
        <relay-shoutcast-metadata>1</relay-shoutcast-metadata>
    </relay>

Thank You for possible answers and sorry for my broken English…
