I’ve done some temporary streaming where we go on for a group of chat buddies and do a show, and under some conditions someone’s player or recorder will try to connect over and over. That fills up the available slots, and it seems they’re released prett fast, though I think it can cause others to have connection problems as its happening. Check the logs, then search on the client and hammering, to see if others have had the issue.
Could you temporarily change your port, like go to 8007 and then link to that from your stream page. I wonder about streaming servers having anti-hammering, like an FTP can have a retry delay of so many seconds on failed attempts. I don’t know if delay is a good indea in streaming though.
