Then likely you got the wrong password or username.

If you talk about that win* GUI: It's gone. Writing and maintaining
software for win* is very complicated and time consuming. So the GUI has
been dropped to get resources for improvements for all our users.

So the server is actually running.

My guess is that you over-configured your Icecast2. e.g. you added a
<mount> section for no reason. Without seeing your config file it's just
random guessing. I suggest you to start with a fresh config and *just*
change the passwords. If 'SAM' has a username field use 'source' and the
source password as given in the config.

Have a nice day!
