  • Hi there!
    • http://www.desotowiwx.com
I have one IP addersss that is on my icecast server all the time. I kick them and they come right back. It don't look like they are slowing anything down I am just wondering why they are just sitting there?

User Agent
VLC/3.0.1 LibVLC/3.0.1

I even turn off the stream for about 30 min and started it again and they are right back on.

I am hosting my own icecast server right now. and its in the admin part of it.

can you block that IP on your router?

You know the funny thing about that? I never thought of doing that. Thanks!

I'm confused.  Isn't the purpose of the live stream to allow access to those who otherwise wouldn't have it?

To answer the original question, I don't think it really matters.  Just my opinion, of course.

I would agree with gwwilk.  I really dont think it matters or slows it down. 

I've got the same thing going on.  Curious if this is the one you are seeing?

I would agree with gwwilk.  I really dont think it matters or slows it down. 

I disagree. I run several Shoutcast servers on my hosted machine in a local colo. One user camping on a stream is using bandwidth continuously. There's no reason for someone to camp continuously on a NOAA stream unless they are repeating it. It's not like a radio station or police/fire scanner.

I dunno about Icecast servers, but on the Shoutcast admin page, you can ban an IP address.

Maybe it is Prince.  No wait. He is dead.

Or the NWS. It is in Chanhassen but still the same area.

Or Hazeltine.

It all runs together out there.  Wife works in that area. I can have her go to the house and cut their internet cable.

Point taken on the bandwidth usage.  My upload is limited to 10Mb/sec. 

Now I Have two more camping on my stream.  Kick them off and they come right back. 

75.142.136.161 is out of Oregon and 75.254.50.18 is out of Texas.  You can block IP's on Icecast2.  I think I'm going to block the one out of Minnesota and keep an eye on the other two. 

Would really like to know what that NOAA Weather Radio Ver. 9.4.5 user agent is originating from.  Got any idea Mike?

Check your Email, Doug..
I think the **73.****** User agent eventually tracks back to a medical supply company in Mansfield MA

It turns out that I have three listeners on my Raspi driven Icecast server, two of whom are campers:



My bandwidth upstream of 1Gb/sec isn't affected by this.  I wonder why these two ISP's campers are doing this, however.  Are they perhaps offering a service to their users?

For 216.167.221.43 we have this, and for 71.31.114.32 we have this.

The same Chaska, MN ISP shows up on my Icecast server as well.
