People can't connect to me! Help me plz

Ok here is the deal
I connect thru the internet thru a modem from www.speedtouch.com
What happens is I got a pppoe connection and thru the modem it connects to the broadband provides.
Of course I have a internal ip which is anything @ all, since I have to connect to the modem via LAN or else the pppoe connection won't work.
But I don't have any port issues

I am running winamp and the shourtcast server (dnas) on the same machine.
I can make winamp connect to the shoutcast server using localhost:8000 or IP:8000
it will work, either way

Meanwhile, when people try to connect to my stream server, it won't work.

Also, If I try to connect to IP:8001 I get a 'sincyng to mpeg error' or a 'could not connect error' (the error message changed when I played with srcip destip)

I don't understand, if I can connect thru my EXTERNAL ip , why can't other people???

please help ASAP

Are you getting any errors in the DNAS?

------

If the server and source are on the same machine, put localhost into the address box in the SHOUTcast Source (WinAmp).

------

Link using this format: http://yourIP:yourPORT/listen.pls Replace "yourIP" with your IP (which you can find here) and "yourPORT" your portbase defined by your DNAS (server) config file. The default is 8000.

If you have a dynamic IP, you can get a static name at www.no-ip.com.

As I mentioned, use localhost in the DSP to connect to your server. That is, if you're not already doing so. Report back if you receive any new errors.

------

Post your link here for testing.

Also, please post a snippet of your DNAS (server) log.

Somehow, it worked.. I'm using winamp 5 and maybe only other winamp5 clients will be able to connect.. how do I cancel out the 'delay' that happens between me actually saying sumfin and someone actually hearing (it's like a 60s delay)

I lowered the ports from 8000 to 900 and it worked.
Now I need to cancel out this delay. It's like a 90s delay now.

Anyone can connect using any compatible audio player.

Check out the results from a SHOUTcast forum search on 'delay', or 'buffer', or 'lag', or 'latency', or 'real time', or...

The answer to all is:
The buffer allows QoS (quality of service) to the listener.
If you want real time, then SHOUTcast is not the solution.
