Icecast & Internet Radio, connection keeps timing out.


I just want to say before I actually make my post that, although I've been using linux for a while, I don't really 'play around' with it, so I don't know too much about it.

A friend and me have decided to try and set up an internet radio for a game we play, I told him I can try doing it while I have some free time at the moment.

I've installed IceCast, and set everything up correctly (or to the best I can using this guide: )

When I ask my friends to try and connect, it doesn't seem to work. It either times out, or the connect cannot be found. I've enabled port forwarding on my router to forward all connections for port 8000 to my computer, and I've tried changing a few things in the config file that I thought may affect it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks in Advance

Just curious, what kind of router do you have? Is it Linksys?

I've been using Icecast + a Netgear router for the longest time. I tried a new Linksys router and had problems like you describe.

Any way you can try bypassing this router?
