Server appears to go offline when listener limit is reached


If I set the max connection to 10 (for example), and 9 or more listeners tune in, Centova Cast reports the server as being down and the SHOUTcast DNAS admin/status page at http://ipaddress:port stops responding.


This is not a bug, and it is not related to Centova Cast -- this is unfortunately just how SHOUTcast DNAS works.

The "listener limit" in SHOUTcast DNAS is actually a "client limit", and every connection to SHOUTcast DNAS (whether it's an administrative connection to the http://ipaddress:port URL, or an actual tuned-in listener) is counted toward that limit.

Once you reach that limit, SHOUTcast DNAS will not allow any further connections of any kind, which is why Centova Cast thinks the server is down and the administrative link no longer works.

Unfortunately, because this is an internal feature of the SHOUTcast DNAS application, there is nothing that we can do about this as part of Centova Cast.
