[Icecast] Newbie

I am using Winamp, Icecast2 Server, and Edcast.  I believe I have set these
up properly so that I can set up and broadcast an internet radio station.

These are the links I used to help me:

https://www.pcworld.com/article/190705/start_your_own_internet_radio_station_for_free.html

https://www.fastserv.com/kb/article/edcast_winamp_-_easy_steps_to_streaming_to_icecast_or_shoutcast/

http://icecast.org/docs/icecast-2.4.1/

Also, here is my icecast.xml file:

<icecast>
    <!-- location and admin are two arbitrary strings that are e.g. visible
         on the server info page of the icecast web interface
         (server_version.xsl). -->
    <location>Earth</location>
    <admin>paavo</admin>

    <!-- This is the hostname other people will use to connect to your
server.
         It affects mainly the urls generated by Icecast for playlists and
yp
         listings. You MUST configure it properly for YP listings to work!
    -->
    <hostname>71.115.185.54</hostname>

    <!-- IMPORTANT!
         Especially for inexperienced users:
         Start out by ONLY changing all passwords and restarting Icecast.
         For detailed setup instructions please refer to the documentation.
         It's also available here: http://icecast.org/docs/

             it also significantly increases latency between the source
             client and listening client.  For low-latency setups, you
             might want to disable this. -->

needs it).
         Also it allows direct access to e.g. /status-json.xsl from other
sites.

If you can help me correct any incorrect settings so that I can broadcast,
please let me know, or direct me to the proper person/website.

Thank you.
