Help!!!!!!

Ok you guys...i did all it said to do and its all running i guess....but...How and Where do i get the address to type out on the screen so people can click on it and listen to it at the same time i am???
here is what im talking about...how do i get the http:// address


If you want to tell a friend to listen to your stream, you would instruct them to open Winamp, press CTRL+L or go the to Open Location option in the Winamp main menu, and type in the "http://" followed by the IP number the SHOUTcast server administrator gave you preceded with a ":" and the port number you were also given. If they typed in the information correctly, they would just press the "Open" button and Winamp would automatically connect and begin to stream the audio to them via the SHOUTcast server. For more infromation, please refer to the SHOUTcast online documentation which will be available shortly

OK.
The address of a Shoutcast server has the following form:
http://IP Address/Port

What you need to know here is your IP address.

If you run Win95/98, you have to use a tool called winipcfg.
See here for a detailed explanation about how to use it.
If you run Windows NT 4
1) Hit "run" in the Start Menu
2) Type cmd, then Enter
3) In the Dos Window, type ipconfig

Then, you'll know your IP address.

An easier way is to go to http://www.whatismyip.com Your IP address will be displayed on the screen. So your shoutcast server address will be http://**IP** :8000 - e.g. 140.203.8.22:8000

All right people!!!!!

Screw the IP, forget it exhists. All you have to do is go to the main Shoutcast page andif you typed in a description of your station, or preferably your name just search for it. Once your stream is found click the tune in button!!!!!

It's as easy as that.
