[Icecast] Still Struggling with Secure Connections

Which version of Icecast are you running and from which repo did you install it?
I always used the xiph repo: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/multimedia:/xiph/
as for example on at least older Debian versions the one on the official repos were NOT compiled with ssl support.

Cheers, Paul

I made a special pair of keys just for Icecast with this command:

$ openssl req -newkey rsa:2048 -new -nodes -x509 -days 3650 -keyout key.pem -out cert.pem

I combined the two files like this:

$ cat cert.pem key.pem > icecast.pem

I placed icecast.pem in /etc/icecast2 and used 'chown icecast2:icecast icecast.pem' to change owner to icecast2:icecast.

I also changed its protection to 600 with 'chmod 600 icecast.pem' since it does contain a private key.

The listen socket has SSL enabled:


I check <paths> in icecast.xml:


I reloaded the configuration:

$ /etc/init.d/icecast2 reload

Tested with:


Same PR_END_OF_FILE error.

I'm stumped.
