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
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.
