Is there a way you can set the  limit the amount of mount points a reseller can have to resell?

You mean like Icecast mount points?

Why would you need to limit that?
Because they use up server resources, right?/: -- We can limit users but not resellers

Mount Points don't use any significant system resources, as they are contained within the same Icecast instance.

Have you measured this in some way?
No but I figured since we can limit single stream/users from using mount points (so I can charge extra $$)   then there had to be a reason,  so u tell me :) I have no choice but to give unlimited mount points

Well I see your point (though I think this is more of an anti-abuse tool).

So you're saying that it should be possible to globally assign max mount points to a reseller the same way you can set max slots or max disk space right?
Well the more things I can add on to the order page the better, this way I can keep my costs down for both users and resellers by offering the bare basic features,  if a reseller gets a 5 stream package, I can give them 5 mount points, if they want more I can sell them more.

it will be perfect if we could limit a reseller so it only can use a server software, or a autodj software, or a server from the cluster?

i am having problems controlling my resellers cause they sign up for a icecast only plan and they are able to use shoutcast on the other server of the cluster, wich has a limited license to 10 accounts, so obviously im using it only for some specific clients only.
