If you're running icecast in a jail root (chroot enabled), then you may not have a properly setup DNS resolver.

Maybe this post will point you in the right direction: http://icecast.xiph.narkive.com/5v2EeNBD/eror-no-dns <http://icecast.xiph.narkive.com/5v2EeNBD/eror-no-dns>

Kind regards,

> Both of these resulted in working and stable icecast, but without the possibility of url authentication.
> Mountpoint authentication is configured as shown here:
> <authentication type="url">
> <option name="mount_add"       value="http://some.server.org/stream_control.php"/ <http://some.server.org/stream_control.php%22/>>
> <option name="mount_remove"    value="http://some.server.org/stream_control.php"/ <http://some.server.org/stream_control.php%22/>>
> <option name="listener_add"    value="http://some.server.org/stream_control.php"/ <http://some.server.org/stream_control.php%22/>>
> <option name="listener_remove" value="http://some.server.org/stream_control.php"/ <http://some.server.org/stream_control.php%22/>>
> <option name="stream_auth" value="http://some.server.org/stream_control.php"/ <http://some.server.org/stream_control.php%22/>>
> <option name="user" value='source'/>
> <option name="pass" value='pass'/>
> <option name="auth_header" value="icecast-auth-user: 1"/>
> </authentication>
> Script named stream_control.php just writes POST data received from calling site (to some file) and returns icecast-auth-user: 1.
> This script is never called by any of these methods by the icecast server, also in the error.log I am able to find following lines (every time I try to connect to icecast as a listener - or a stream client):
> INFO auth/auth_add_listener adding client for authentication
> INFO auth/queue_auth_client auth on /mountpoint has 1 pending
> INFO auth_url/url_add_listener client auth (http://some.server.org/stream_control.php) <http://some.server.org/stream_control.php)> failed with ""
> Please advise further actions. Thanks!
> PS: yum update was done, without any change.
