Sorry but did you only came to this ML to troll? If so, please do that 

Claiming you reverse proxy Icecast for „security reasons“ you fail 
to further detail
and then when asked about your reverse proxy setup refuse to give any 
whatsoever and just replied „No“ is just quite a troll behavior.

If you are not interested in helping improving things, discuss things 
and help others out, I don’t really see why you even write to this 
list at all.
