Hey,

  It seams strange you need to use more then one icecast.  But you have to
make sure the PID, logs, and any other little file that need to be written.
Make multiple config files and it should work.  I never done it cause I
never had set up that needed it. (and not sure what one does)

becuase:
  1> I have run close to 100 active mounts at once, with 50 to 100
listeners on each.
 2> This also included 50 or so push relays, ( We have to push to secondary
servers on other networks because of bandwidth restrictions. )
 3> Used a common address for all streams with a php script to rout it to
the correct servers.

 and his was a couple years ago. Today we have probably 100 mounts
predefined with a seperate source port per team that use the service.we
current use a couple overflow servers to handle large amount of listeners.
