Running a ShoutCast server is not allowed on our Free shells. It's clearly mentioned in our TOS .

I agree with Som. Tutorial should be edited and free shell feature for shoutcast removed. So only paid shells are allowed to run shoutcast servers.

As well as above statements, I believe the "freeport" shell command would need to be used (unless you had your own dedicated ip address) to find an open port to use on a paid shared host (this can be edited in the config file by changing the "serverport=8080" value).
