Any way of making it do LOCAL streaming without this filter, and filter only
for IP numbers outwith my local subnet?

I use this to stream low band for software slients, high band to mpg123 on the
localhost:

mp3 mp3 http *
$lame$ --silent --mp3input -b 32 $FILE$ -
mp3 mp3 http 127.0.0.1
-

the 4th parameter can be an IP or a MAC address. Single reference only. No
masks or wildcards allowed at this point. "*" applies as a global. Specific
IPs/MACs override the global setting. Make sure you restart your server after
making changes. Also, make a copy to keep for later, as software updates
currently overwrite the file.
