[LAU] icecast and live-streaming

  I just set up an icecast2-server and have an ices2 source-client working 
  But I'd like to do some realtime-streaming with jack. So I installed darkice 
0.18.1 and get this error:
DarkIce: VorbisLibEncoder.cpp:142: vorbis lib opening underlying sink error 
  I hear it arises quite a lot, because darkice can't connect to the server. I 
checked all my ports and compared the config with that of ices. Everything 
seems to be the same.
  I wonder: I know that at least on the linux-audio conferences Joern and Eric 
used icecast and some jack-input. Is there another solution to do it?
  I'd need a text-based or no I/O client, for not being able to use the GUI. 
Or does anyone have any idea on the darkice error?
  Here's some system info and the darkice config:
Linux 2.6.21-mm2 # PREEMPT
Debian etch (4.0)
Self-installed jack and ogg-vorbis tools (linked into darkice properly!)
jack 0.107.2
icecast2.3.1 (deb-package)
Darkice config:
device          = jack  # OSS DSP soundcard device for the audio input
sampleRate      = 48000     # sample rate in Hz. try 11025, 22050 or 44100
bitsPerSample   = 16        # bits per sample. try 16
channel         = 2         # channels. 1 = mono, 2 = stereo

# this section describes a streaming connection to an IceCast2 server
# there may be up to 8 of these sections, named [icecast2-0] ... [icecast2-7]
# these can be mixed with [icecast-x] and [shoutcast-x] sections
bitrateMode     = abr       # average bit rate
format          = vorbis    # format of the stream: ogg vorbis
bitrate         = 128        # bitrate of the stream sent to the server
server          = localhost
                            # host name of the server
port            = 8000      # port of the IceCast2 server, usually 8000
password        = I12oveBS    # source password to the IceCast2 server
mountPoint      = /progrock.ogg  # mount point of this stream on the IceCast2 
name            = Progressive Rock stream
                            # name of the stream
description     = Progrock from the 70s to 90s
                            # description of the stream
url             = http://juliencoder.de
                            # URL related to the stream
genre           = Progressive Rock
public          = yes       # advertise this stream?

  I skipeed [general], for it is unchanged to the standard.
  Thanks for any help!
  Kindest regards
