As a Live365 Broadcaster, you have some control over who listens to your station and for how long.

First, make sure you are editing the station where you want to make these changes. Highlight and click the station name to select it. If you are unfamiliar with how to navigate this part of Live365, please see this help article which describes dashboard navigation.

Once you have selected the appropriate station, you will be taken to that station's menu page. From this page, you will be able to navigate and make changes and adjustments to your station. 

If you notice that a listener is connecting for long periods of time (e.g. longer than 8 hours), you do have an option to ban that IP address from listening. This will help to regulate your TLH usage and cut down on illegal stream recording. This option can also be helpful when the IP is a BOT that you do not want connecting to your stream and using your TLH.

You can view the currently connected users and the length of their connections by selecting "Analytics" from the Station Menu. Next, select "Realtime," from the drop-down menu.

Use the “Ban Listener” button on the far right to stop a problematic listener from connecting. 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  The ban does not take place when you click the ban button. Bans only take effect when the user disconnects from the stream. 

You can reverse the ban by selecting Station Settings -> Restrictions -> IP Bans from the Station Menu. Click the "X" next to the IP hash to remove it.

Under Station Settings -> Restrictions -> Session Duration, you can also set an hour limit for the listening duration. Read more about stream restrictions here.

Note: The duration for each user session is determined when that session starts. Any changes made to session length will only affect sessions started after the change went into effect. Preexisting sessions will retain the duration they were orginally given.

NOTE: For privacy concerns, we display an IP hash, rather than the actual IP address (12.345.67.123) of the listener.
