Thanks for the prompt reply Thomas,
Well as an amateur, and newbie, I would not know reading logs does not mean
anything to me as I have no idea what it means when I can actually find
them, this is why I am so confused. Not too sure how to check the logs,
maybe obvious to some, but alas I'm not quite acquainted with the walking
I have searched for a very long time with issues streaming to a shoutcast
server via icecast, just can't find anything out about it.
If I were to stream using icecast, would it be the icecast.xml I would have
to configure for the shoutcast server, or.. just the darkice.cfg?
Icecast is working like a dream streaming live audio to anything that
connects to it (the pi), just trying to push that live stream to a shoutcast
server via the darkice.cfg.. I'm wondering if I should point anything from
the icecast.xml to the shoutcast server, but last time I did that it broke -
wasn't sure what I was doing anyway.
I may have to try something else I guess, but I hope I don't fox-up anything
by doing that, I've spent days configuring the little raspberry pi, hate to
start all over. eesh..
Thanks any way

I'm not sure what your problem is exactly. If it is with Icecast not
accepting a stream, then you should check the Icecast error.log.
I don't remember details, but I seem to remember darkice is not very
keen on verbose logging. Have you considered using a different source
client like Ices2?
If your problem is with Shoutcast, then we obviously can't help you.
