Hi all,
OK, this stuff about internal and external IP addresses is confusing me. I always thought that an internal IP address (192.168.x.x) was for running things on a network, and an external for running things on the internet.
I use to log into my router and have forwarded port 28888 (8000 is already being used by another server I’m running) for Icecast, as specified in the <listen-socket> section. The router doesn’t ask me for an IP address, but instead gives me a list of connected machines.
My config file is below.
<hostname>home.dayme.me</hostname> <!-- home.dayme.me resolves to my machine's external IP address (, which is static. -->




<header name="Access-Control-Allow-Origin" value="*" />


<alias source="/" destination="/status.xsl"/>

<loglevel>3</loglevel> <!-- 4 Debug, 3 Info, 2 Warn, 1 Error -->
<logsize>10000</logsize> <!-- Max size of a logfile -->
