Thank you for your quick response.  I can't believe that I didn't think of that...I guess I just assumed that it would use SSL.  I'm using Liquidsoap as my source client.  Once you brought that up I started researching whether there was a way to force Liquidsoap to use SSL and from what I found it doesn't look like there is an option...but please correct me if you or anyone else who reads this knows differently.


After I had a good idea of what was happening I found this other thread http://lists.xiph.org/pipermail/icecast/2015-January/013118.html that talks about exactly what I'm trying to do using Liquidsoap.  I followed it and I'm good now running on two ports...one SSL and one not from connecting to Liquidsoap.


Thanks again for your hint :) and please let me know if you've seen other ways to tackle this with Liquidsoap than what I setup.

Those messages tell that there is no mount nor a file in web/. I suspect
that the stream is not mounted (= the source is not connected).

Which source client do you use? If you switch the port to TLS that is
used by the source client to connect you also need to set the source
client to TLS mode.

Please come back with the answers. I'm sure this isn't impossible.

Have a good night!
