You probably have a BT Voyager 205 which is a router. It's a black box with flashing green lights on it. You need to configure it to allow port 8000.
Norton needs configuring too. XP has a built-in firewall which can be disabled it's not configurable before SP2.
If you've set up a static IP to your computer http://portforward.com/networking/staticip.htm
then it's easy to forward ports to your router. If you're brave enough to use telnet, tell me your static IP and I'll give you copy-paste instructions as I probably use the same router as you.
