Before writing here I really tried almost everything, reading the archives
here, the FAQ and dozens of more or less well commented online guides and

My environment is a Windows server, with IIS as web server (I know, blame
and flame on me, but this was available on my hands at the time). The
server is hosting several websites and an icecast 2.4.4 running an online

The radio on icecast can be listen through its website (on my server too)
with an html5 player.

Of course since end of january I started to have notifications from
listeners that were unable to hear anything due to Chrome browser update
and unsecure content (website is of course under SSL with its cert).

A patch has been forwarded by myself to the Chrome listeners by instructing
them how to allow the unsecure content from the radio's website in the
settings of chrome, then I started to find the solution.

As you of course know, the windows package of icecast 2.4.4 has no SSL
capability so I switched almost immediately into the proxy forward
solution. However no way as I'm not able to bind the SSL certificate to the
icecast streaming port (8002 in my case).

If you have any advice about a possible solution (even temporary) with a
windows and IIS environment, it would be highly appreciated. Otherwise, if
you know that it is literally impossible, simply tell me "no way" so I
simply stop struggling.

I have full access to the server so I can play with settings, install other
softwares and so on.

Thanks a lot, all the best to you.
