Help please

hello i was wondering how can i listen to my shoutcast server on the same computer that is running the server just to know if it works?

when i use this link http://194.144.4.64:8000/listen.pls
i get an error in firefox but i can find the server on yp.shoutcast.com but when i try to listen to it i get an error Failed to Connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 194.144.4.64:8000.
Though the site seems valid, the browser was unable to establish a connection.

can sombody tell me what chould be wrong?

external ip : port but you need to ensure port +1 is open in the port forwarding eg

8000 - 8001
