Ah , I have been down this road myself :-) ...... I can give you a few words of advice......

  • As far as the server itsef , it really doesn't need anything spectaculer in regards to hardware & specs.....a box running XP with 512mb of RAM would suffice...so your server should be fine
  • Bandwith - you are going to need ALOT of it if you are streaming more then 64kb's....typically if you are playing any sort of music you stream at 128kb....so make sure you have a hefty data plan!
  • For the server itself , use the "Shoutcast" software for hosting the station....it is easy to use , has plenty of support and documentation....you can literally have a station up in 5 mins!
  • For broadcasting you can use the Winamp program with the "Shoutcast DSP" plugin...but if you are playing alot of music , want advertisments and like to DJ I would recommend something like "SAM 4"
Just a quick overview to get you started , all you really have to do is download the shoutcast server software , edit the config file - which includes the admin password , the port to broadcast on , the max number of listners you want etc..........

You then need to do some port forwarding, opening up the port on your router and sending the connections to your server....actually doing it is easy, but it varies by router model, you can use this site for a step by step, just select your router , and then select "Shoutcast" http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm

From there you launch the server program , and connect to the server with Winamp or SAM....and now your on the air!


SHoutcast documentation to setup DJ and server:
http://shoutcast.com/download


I have alot of exp. with this , you didnt really specify a specfic problem or question , so if you need anything else be sure to leave a comment here and I can help you even more!

    No your server really doesn't need anything but a connection to the internet.....the bandwidth is basically the data that you are uploading/downloading......most ISP's have a cap on your bandwidth , once you go over they shut you down.

    Here is a calculator to show you what I mean:

    24 kbps with 1 listeners for 1 Hour (3600 seconds).

    0.01 GB
    10.55 MB
    10800 Bytes

    That is how much bandwidth would be taken by one listener for an hour at a 24kbps stream


    To do your own calculations you can go here:http://servers.internet-radio.org.uk/too...

    If you pay for a hosted server from a hosting company , then yes can be unlimited bandwith and you should not have a problem. I was just going by the fact that you were using your own server , if that was the case you would be using your own bandwidth which was what I was warning you about.

    Its expensive to get unlimited bandwidth , but you need to call your internet provider for the details....if you need any help setting up feel free to ask!

HP Compaq ProLiant DL380 G2 Server won't boot from cdrom


Hello, I think you might find more information on starting up the DL380 G2 at the link shown below:
http://h20566.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c00972124

Also, the replacement instructions, in case it needs to be replaced, (and relevant troubleshooting info) for the 5i controller are found in the link here :http://h20566.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?sp4ts.oid=316587&docLocale=en_US&docId=emr_na-c00688182

Please first make sure that you are using the proper startup boot disk for the server before entering the CD ROM option from the boot menu. Also, check the front panel of the SCSI drives for any errors or blinking LEDS that correspond to an error code. You can run a diagnostics CD/DVD that arrived with the manufacturer's pack to detect any raid issues on startup.

If you are still facing difficulties with booting up the server, you can find a video for replacement of the appropriate scsi drive here if you are still facing any issues of your scsi drive. Try a different hard disk or check the relevant diagnostics to verify whether is the controller or the drive that complicates the booting of the server

For more details check the scsi manual in the link below (section "FBWC LEDs" , pages 15-17).

Hi, how to switch off HP Proliant DL320 G2 server fans? In Normal fans speed and noise


The fans are essential to the cooling of the processors and everything else in there, if they are running fast then usually that means your processor is overworked. I'd go for a fresh operating system if you can.
The fans should come on really fast when its first turned on, then slow down after a few minutes.

Check your BIOS if it's detect your Hard Drive.If detected then check your system BIOS whether SATA setting is enable or not. Disable it if you have enable it in IDE configuration.If you find there is no way to configure SATA in your BIOS setting then you need to download SATA driver for that Hard drive and used a software called nlite.

You might have forgot to configure your preffered dns servers on the lan properties, that is why you are not able to ping the other systems.
