Shoutcast music server connection issue

I have set my server all correctly as it appears since i can connect and listen to my own music station from the same computer with another media player. the problem is that none else seems to be able to connect to my server. the browser is slowly loading and fails finally. any ideas why this happen?

Examine your shoutcast logfiles. Chances are that you forgot to allow internet traffic through your router/firewall. That's called Port Forwarding.

I cant understand.. I did everything stated in portforward so i suppose my ports are open but still the problem remains.ill try to do everything again from 0 but im sure that there wont be any diff.i called my internet provider and they said that they do not block my port in any way. any other ideas?

To be more specific. the error that keeps poping is


<03/03/09@17:33:19> [yp_add] yp.shoutcast.com gave error (nak)
<03/03/09@17:33:19> [yp_add] yp.shoutcast.com gave extended error (Cannot see your station/computer (IP: 79.107.253.206:8000) from the Internet, disable Internet Sharing/NAT/firewall/ISP cache (Connection timed out).)



Thats sth predicted in the guide u gave above and what needs to be done is open the port. i did that (i think correctly) and still the error remains. the server works properly on local network so..

it looks exactly like this. it connects properly and the error comes on the shoutcast dnas server exactly as i posted above. my only guess is that my ports arent open so ill just retry it. everything else seems to be working fine

When that happened a friend was able to see my server after looking it up in the yp.shoutcast.com and was able to actually connect to the server. the link that is http : // mystaticip:8000 still doesnt work for computers oustide my lan.
