Hello everyone,

I'm in the process of running an Icecast server and I would like to know
some best pratices.

1. Should I place Icecast on port 8000 or should I change that to one more
common (80, 443...)?
2. Should I place the server behind a webserver like ngingx or apache?
3.Can I disable the login interface? what can be disabled?

My best guess is to run icecast behind a webserver, keeping icecast on port
8000 and refusing everything that is not a request for a legit mount,
adding a custom admin url.

Thanks for your input
