router/broadcasting .pls

first thing is that my router won't let me ftp and it sais that shoutcast can't see my server, i think that's part of the problem. I have a netgear fvs318 router with v1.4 firmware, i can't figure out what to change....

second thing, how do i make a .pls file that will make people connect to my music stream

all help appreciated

1.
Check out your router documentation and/or router manufacturer website for port forwarding (aka virtual server) instructions.

Alternatively, Check out the SHOUTcast Technical Support Sticky post titled:
SHOUTcast: Important Info & Answers to FAQs. READ ME!

Scroll down a bit and look for the section titled:
Routers, Firewalls, and Networks. Oh My!

2.
DNAS link: http://yourDNASip:yourDNASport
Listen link: http://yourDNASip:yourDNASport/listen.pls

Replace yourDNASip with the ip of the DNAS (SHOUTcast server) and yourDNASport with the DNAS port (default is 8000)

Example:
If your DNAS ip is 123.345.567.789 and your DNAS portBase is 2112, then your links would be:
DNAS link: http://123.345.567.789:2112
Listen link: http://123.345.567.789:2112/listen.pls

Also, if your router doesn't support local loopback then machines on the same lan as the DNAS (you) need to use the lan ip of the DNAS to connect/listen.
Machines not on the same lan as the DNAS (the rest of the world) need to use the real, world-visible ip of the DNAS to connect/listen.

Please don't give out urls with 127.0.0.1 as the ip. That is a local loopback ip.
See RFC3330 for more information.

Please don't give out urls with 192.168.x.y or 10.x.y.z or 172.(16-31).x.y as the ip. That is a private lan ip.
See RFC1918 for more information. Scroll down and look for the section titled:
3. Private Address Space

How to find your ip address (Part I).
How to find your ip address (Part II).

Finally, you can get a static name, such as foo.bar.com (not as cool as that, though ) from http://www.no-ip.com or one of the other myriad of Dynamic DNS Services.
Then, your links would be:
DNAS link: http://foo.bar.com:yourDNASport
Listen link: http://foo.bar.com:yourDNASport/listen.pls

Please read some polite advice.

ip forwarding

ok good news, for me ne ways lol,

i got the station to work , but no-ip didn't do much, as of right now i can get into the station as 192.168.0.4:8000/listen.pls

i need some help setting that so it forwards to that via my no-ip address.... (i need everything including what type of forward or /we it is)

as i know this only works with lan

and also is there a way to change it from listen.pls to w/e my radio station is ( is it in the config file?)

as i know this only works with lan

no-ip.com has a support section.

*****************

If you don't want to use the DNASs listen.pls, you can make your own.

Create a pls file pointing to your DNAS and place it on a webserver with the approproite mime types.

Example (simple) pls:
code:
[playlist]
numberofentries=2
File1=http://dnas-ip:dnas-portBase
Title1=Title
Length1=-1
Version=2

more of a newb then that

hehe i'm even more of a newb than you think if you could explain like i'm a 2 year old that'd be great, that's the only reason i don't have it right, if i could get it the way i wanted it which would be to be able to type that in in any browser anywhere in the world i would've hehe...

if you could give me the code or w/e on what to do from scratch extremely basic that'd be nice, also


i think my firewall is what is messing some of it up, but i won't know until it's done right...

oh yeah i got dynamic ip which doesn't help either and dns is

domain name server right?
