That's normal, I can't connect via my own IP, some routers don't let you do that.
You will need to forward your ports. People outside will not be able to hear you until you have done this.

i have forwarded ports 8000-8001 but which ip do i use

www.whatismyip.com will tell you the IP to give to listeners, you will not be able to connect to it yourself and will always have to use your internal IP or localhost to check your own stream.

what about testing on another computer on the network do use the internal ip for that
8th August 2005, 09:43
Yes you will, as it will still be going via the router, most routers these days don't like this 'local-loopback' thing. :)
