Same problem here with my Linksys, I have ports 80, 21 (ftp server), 8000, 8001 all forwarding, but no luck.
I can stream on my local network, but shoutcast will time out over the net.
However, you can get around the problem on the Linksys if you go to the Advanced tab in the settings and go to the last tab DMZ Host. Put the server ip in there and it will stream fine, however I'm not sure of the risks (if any) in opening up your computer to the internet. If anyone has anymore info on the DMZ setting for the Linksys, would appreciate.
Otherwise there must be a port or two that needs to be forwarded...
