Jeremy and Carlos,
    Thanks much for the help! After updating my ports tree properly, I 
got DSS 6.03 installed on FreeBSD 6.0 no problem. However, I am still 
having a streaming issue that you might recognize. When I first start 
the server, I can get a playlist working and also broadcast live using 
the free Mac based QT broadcaster client. I can connect and disconnect 
to the playlist and the live stream one or two times, but after a short 
while, the server stops responding.
    Any ideas? Is this a known issue, or am I having a network problem? 
I feel like I have run into something similar in early troubleshooting 
that had to do with lost UDP packets, but my network environ hasn't 
changed much since this worked, so I was suspecting the switch to QT7 
clients and hoping the upgrade to DSS 6.03 would fix the issue. I *do* 
have streaming over port 80 enabled, and the service has it's own IP 
    Thanks again for the assistance.
