I have a cable conexion with a d-link router and a switcher belkin. Have install all the software and the shoutcast gave me the message "yp.shoutcast.com.touched!" - This sims to be fine.
In another computer i go to www.shoutcast.com and search my radio (radio jumbo) and it appears. When i press to "tune in" opens the winamp and i receive the message "timed out". Can´t hear my radio.
I asked other people to try to listen and receive the answer "no sound" - Probably the same error message.
Could some one help me?::rolleyes:

You can only play MP3s

I can Listen when I use the Listen link on your Station Page -- "Aretha Franlkin - Say a Little Prayer" :) RealPlayer is what opens all streams on my PC.
I would suggest turning Track Title Updates on and make sure that all of your MP3s have a filled out ID3 tag.
You can't configure listener PCs, so THEY have to make it work -- you're doing the right thing, just leave as many options as you can. In actuality, you cannot force any particular player to play your stream, or assume that any listener has any particular player -- that's 100% user dependent.
My tip: Stay away from WMP -- it is the least functional (but most common) player out there.

Inside of the lan if i write http://server:8000/listen.pls
i can hear the radio.
But if i write http://188.8.131.52:8000/listen.pls i receive the information "The page cannot be displayed"
You mean i have to take out the player i have in my page radio.php? - In this page i have configured like this:
http://server:8000/listen.pls and each turn i open the page it starts to play immediatly. Need to do nothing. But with http://184.108.40.206:8000/listen.pls in the link i can't hear nothing.
What could be wrong? Could you try to open this pages and try to listen? It plays?
Sorry for the inconvenience. (and soory if my english is not so good. I'm from Portugal and try hard.)

If I were you, I would not embed a WMP to play a shoutcast, EVER. This is a suggestion -- based on the reasons I stated before. It will not work 90% of the time -- Believe it, or not.
Your OTHER problem -- if I understand corectly, is when YOU use the internet IP (220.127.116.11) it does not work for YOU. If you use the LAN IP, it works.
I can listen. So can anyone else who is configured properly to listen.
Try to ping the internet IP (ping 18.104.22.168) -- What happens?

OK, good, bueno :)
This means that issue #2 is your problem only -- I can ping you -- so can anyone else on the internet.
What you do next, is up to you: The issue is with your D-Link -- it does not prevent listeners from listening to your radio -- That embedded player is stopping them.
To fix the "player issue" just use a link to your station page on your website -- http://22.214.171.124:8000/listen.pls -- this will let the listener's config determine the player that opens your stream. That's the best way.
To fix the problem where the internet IP does not work for you alone, you need to "find" how to configure your router to allow internal requests on the WAN IP (the internet address) -- it can be called internet indirection, internet redirection, loopback, or many other names, but these keywords are what you want to look for in the config and documentation for your router. I know nothing about D-Links, but if you go here: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/dlink , you can get help. It's the best place I know, but you have to do some homework. This security "feature" prevents the PCs on your LAN from attacking each other using the internet address.
So you can also leave it alone -- it does not effect internet listeners. You can just use the LAN IP always.
Your ability to listen on the internet IP does not indicate a good (internet-available) stream -- The successful connection by the YP is the only indication you need to verify connectivity. You must learn to trust it.
