Digital_ca Posted January 11, 2010 Share Posted January 11, 2010 I thought I would ask the awesome people here at Hak5 for some help. I want to open a site that will offer locals a chance to hear the local cops etc on my scanner. This has been done over and over before. I want to do it a little different. The normal would be someone feeding either by shoutcast or using windows media encoder to capture sound and screen cap of the screen from the scanner control software. Then they would upload it to some server on a rack running windows and it would be a go. Problem is windows media encoder is awe full slow and a memory hog on all sides. Myscanner is a bc780xlt so I can use this awesome software called proscan. Out of the box the program has a built in webserver and a server for a client program. The webserver will do very basic webpage with a link to a live streaming mp3. Its nice since its two clicks and your on. The client server allows you to serve for a client program that pretty much looks like a scanner and shows the channels and lets you log and record audio. All of this is great if I had a high bandwidth connect at home but I dont. I can only serve a few clients and listeners before my connections goes south. I am trying to find a away to transfer the load to a real server. So my questions are has anyone used proscan before? For those who want to look at it you can at proscan.org. I can remote desktop into my local machine here but is there some hacking hawtness to remote in and run a client server type program and have the load on the network server side. So I log into my box at go daddy then on it I remote back to my local machine and startup proscan thn people can connect to godaddy via my .com and i am only supporting one upload. Any help would be great! John Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
