This page lists known problems of latest released Icecast when operating behind a reverse proxy:

  • access.log will always only show the IP address of the reverse proxy instead of listener IP address.
  • internal XML tree will only show the IP address of the reverse proxy instead of listener IP address. Both for source clients and for listener clients.
  • virtual playlist files will break. (Only if proxy server is configured incorrectly.)
  • authentication helper will break. (Only if proxy server is configured incorrectly.)
