I have a local home instance of icecast running on port 8050. The service appears to start up fine, but I cannot connect a source to it, and the HTTP admin in my web browser keeps timing out. Would you be able to let me know why I can't connecting to the running icecast service? I have the port set in icecast.xml set to 8050. I also set up an application instance in my dashboard for a custom app on another port, but I got the same result.

I ran a netstat -ptlm | grep icecast and this is what shows up

tcp        0      0 127.0.0.1:8050                0.0.0.0:*                   LISTEN      642224/icecast

The message I get in my source client is "cannot connect to socket"

Is port 8050 open in the firewall? If not, please open a support ticket so we can add an open-ports IP address to your account. Also note that you typically would create a new application of type "Custom Application (listening on port)" and use the port assigned, rather than using port 8050.
