[Icecast] What is the web/listen file?

You can use a alias for listen to forward to a active mountpoint. 

 <alias source="/listen" dest="/yourmountpoint"/>

I use this alias for old shoutcast listeners.

 <alias source="/listen.pls" dest="/live"/>   

/live is my active mountpoint in the example.

Best regards,
