Nak error

Hey guys... what's going on... nm here, just trying to set up my shoucast radio, but it's not working. I have followed all the instructions on the web site, but for some reason I keep getting the same message. I have gone to my control panel to unchecked the firewall that comes with the winxp and I don't have a router, but I still tried to go to (it shows a blank page).
I have seen that a lot of people get the same error when trying to broadcast. I have looked all over for the answer, but I couldn't find it.
Could you guys help me?
This is my error message.

Does your ISP block ports?

Check out http://www.radiotoolbox.com/cantheygetin and see if the reported information there helps.

Try setting the DNASs YPort to 666.
Check out the DNASs sc_serv.ini/conf configuration file for the section (default shown below):
; Yport, port to connect to yp.shoutcast.com on. For people behind caching
; webproxies, change this to the alternate port (666 is what it might be,
; check www.shoutcast.com if you have problems). Otherwise, leave this at 80.
; We're actively working on re-opening port 666, but as of release the only
; working port is port 80.

I changed the config file and I got the same error. I went to the web site you gave to me, it says: is Closed
Reason Given: Connection timed out
More about this error: This means that you are most likely behind a firewall, this error esentially says that you and your computer aren't there. You might also check to be sure that your ip is, if it is not then you are behind some sort of proxy.

Does your ISP block ports?
I don't think so, I went to this web site and as the intructions says on 3.4, my ISP is not blocking ports.
Should I call Bellsouth and ask them about that?
