I think we had this conversation yesterday here...
Again, please stop creating new threads for the same problem. You have to configure routers and firewalls to make this error go away. If that's over your head, take Germ's advice. Shoutcast isn't for you.

I'm not trying to be unhelpful - but when you post, it would be useful to know what steps you have already taken to correct the error. I realize there may be a language barrier to overcome, but you'll get all the help you need if you can post info on what you have tried, and how you are set up.
To fix the (nak) error, you have to forward ports on your modem or router, and also configure any PC-based firewalls to allow traffic to come in on that port. If you have followed the guide posted in the sticky above, you should be very close to getting this resolved.

Patience! Don't get frustrated. I'll work with you on this, if you can keep it mellow.
Plan to spend at least half an hour on this, okay?
1) Start your DNAS
2) Launch Winamp and connect to it with your DSP (Set to 127.0.0.1 and port 8000)
3) Once you are playing music, run this first test...
Click that with your browser. Do you see the DNAS status page?
Once you have done that, post back with the results, AND info on your setup.
1) Do you have a router? (D-Link, LinkSys, NetGear etc)
If yes, what is the make and model of it?

Using capital letters is frowned upon here, shouting and being angry is against the rules.
I'm assuming you went here http://www.sp0rky-n00b.co.uk/nakerror.html which is a webpage I made for people who don't understand why they need to forward ports and problems associated with the dreaded nak error.
On that page I clearly link to www.portforward.com which does give you detailed step-by-step instructions of how to forward ports.
If you have forwarded your ports and you're merely getting the error you quoted above then not to worry, the yellowpages directory does get errors sometimes, or if you had to change the yport=80 to 666 then that also grumbles.
I'd advise not relying on the shoutcast directory for listeners and creating a webpage to send your friends etc to. You could also link your radio url to signatures on forums and emails so you get more people checking you out.

@voLcar: in 24 hours you have opened no fewer than six individual threads on this board to resolve one problem - a NAK error that has been addressed in stickies and guides made freely available to you.
Beyond the foul language, you have provided none of the information we have asked you for in an attempt to help you.
So I'm done, as I have a weekend to look forward to and some code that I must finish writing for a client before 5pm.
I wish you the best of luck in sorting it all out. I think, ultimately, your future lies here (http://www.origami.com/)...
