I have got a shared web hosting. The shared web hosting lets me have shell access.
I am using the PuTTy program to access the shell.
It may not be possible using a shared hosting but I want to set up the Shoutcast server on the hosting.
I used to have a virtual hosting. On the virtual hosting the port 8000 worked with the Shoutcast server. However, on this shared hosting the 8000 port won't work.
Here's what the instructions for the Shoutcast server say:
; PortBase. This is the IP port number your server will run on. The
; value, and the value + 1 must be available. If you get a fatal error when
; the DNAS is setting up a socket on startup, make sure nothing else on the
; machine is running on the same port (telnet localhost portnumber -- if you
; get connection refused then you're clear to use that port). Ports < 1024
; may require root privledges on *nix machines. The default port is 8000.
Can somebody tell me how to use the PuTTy program and tell which port will work with the server? I would appreciate any assistance.
