I have installed:

And am trying to access:

Which requires basic authentication via http. I use:

address@hidden cnighswonger]# lynx -auth username:password

I'm not sure - I can see that (using lynx -trace) the server replies
with something that lynx should handle (basic authentication):

--- Talking HTTP1.
Server reply header lines:
Server: Shoutcast DNAS
WWW-authenticate: basic realm="Shoutcast Server"
Content-type: text/html

Lynx doesn't write the user/password that's parsed in the trace file
(generally a good idea, lousy for debugging).  If I were debugging this,
I'd try adding a trace for authentication_info[] in src/HTAlert.c where
it's used - to double-check that it's parsed and passed in properly.
