SHOUTcast DSP not communicating with sc_serv
I'm having trouble getting the SHOUTcast DSP (running in WinAmp 5.2 on a Windows XP Pro box) to communicate with the FreeBSD4 version of sc_serv running on our server.
The BSD server has a static IP and ports 8000 & 8001 are OPEN (I just ran a port scan from my XP box and they're definitely open).
Oddly, Radio Toolbox's port scan reports this:
68.165.xxx.xxx:8000 is Closed (note: I've masked part of the IP for security purposes)
Reason Given: Connection refused
More about this error: This essentially means that the port is open to the internet but has no services associated with it. There is no firewall protection on this port.
sc_serv is running (error-free) and waiting for connections:

However, as soon as I start the SHOUTcast DSP on the Windows XP box, the Status goes to "Receiving Authorization Response" and remains there. The SHOUTcast Server Monitor reports "no source".
The problem is definitely related to the link between the sc_serv running on our BSD server and the SHOUTcast DSP running on our XP box, because everything worked perfectly (right out-of-the-box!) when I ran the Windows version of the server from the same XP box that I'm running the SHOUTcast DSP & WinAmp on. It's not a connection issue, because the BSD server is actively hosting a number of websites and other various functions and is running fine.
I have read the sticky FAQs and searched through quite a number of old messages, but I haven't found anything that helped.
