There is no server, so you cannot connect.
      Code:
$ ping -c 3 asmith.id.au
PING asmith.id.au (165.228.6.27) 56(84) bytes of data.

--- asmith.id.au ping statistics ---
3 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 1999ms

Just choose another server. There should be more. I am not familiar with your application but it should be documented how to choose a different server. I don't think only Australia has one.

Believe or not, mp3splt configuration is not documented even in the man page of the application http://mp3splt.sourceforge.net/mp3splt_ ... n/man.html

google didn't help much, I sent a mail for help to the mailing list of mp3splt.

The version in debian (from 2009) seems to be too old as websites tend to change their interface all to often.
All three source-packages related to mp3splt have bugreports requesting new upstream versions opened against them without any comment from maintainer :/

Upstream provides some deb's on their own, but a first glance suggests that they are of mixed quality, so be careful.

Bonuspoints if you can persuade upstream to become the maintainer of their packages in debian: It's not so hard as they might think, they already did most of it by providing their own packages anyway, it avoids that debian/ubuntu users will have outdated versions (and problems resulting out of that) and finally it avoids duplicated work…
