Hi Alan,
OK. I am now streaming on mountpoint /blah. I’m not streaming music just yet, but if the stream works you should hear me typing and other stuff. Life in my living room, if you like.
I still don’t understand why Icecast needs loopback when other servers don’t.
Here’s an example: I have an SCM system, Fossil server running on port 80 and 8000. I can access repositories on that server by either localhost/repo or home.dayme.me/repo.
I have an FTP server which, again, I can access on ftp://localhost or ftp://home.dayme.me.
Why can’t I do the same thing on Icecast?
