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

    Streaming with Slimserver {Scanned for Viruses}

    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.
