other people can't connect

I'm streaming now and I can connect just fine and I hear the stream, but anyone else that's tried just can't. I have shoutcast server installed and i'm connected successfully. My station even appears in teh website. It's just no one other than me can stream it. I'm streaming with Winamp/DSP Plugin and the server program.

My stream URL is http://68.40.112.217:8000/listen.pls

Tell me if it works for you.

It works for me, but lower your bitrate some, it's skipping and buffering alot.

http://68.40.112.217:8000 -> your DNAS

I can see your DNAS but am not able to maintain a satisfactory listening connection because of constant buffering.

Please use the bandwidth calculators to determine how many listeners you can support at your current streaming bitrate.

Check out the Sticky post titled:
SHOUTcast: Important Info & Answers to FAQs. READ ME!

Scroll down a bit and look for the section titled:
1. DNAS Stuff -> Bandwidth -> DSLReports Bandwidth tester(Only be concerned with the UPLOAD bandwidth)
2. DNAS Stuff -> Bandwidth -> CasterClub's Listener Calculator
3. DNAS Stuff -> Bandwidth -> CasterClub's Bandwidth Calculator

Use 1 to find your upload.
Use 2 to determine the number of listeners you can support at your selected streaming bitrate.

Jay (KXRM) also has a Bandwidth Calculator.

Well, I'm still noticing some buffering, not as much though.

okay my upload is 215kbps

At 64kbps I can safely support 3 listeners.

In that case...

Lower your bitrate!

Or drop MaxUser to 3.

Check out the DNASs sc_serv.ini/conf configuration for the section (default shown below):
code:
; MaxUser. The maximum number of simultaneous listeners allowed.
; Compute a reasonable value for your available upstream bandwidth (i.e. if
; you have 256kbps upload DSL, and want to broadcast at 24kbps, you would
; choose 256kbps/24kbps=10 maximum listeners.) Setting this value higher
; only wastes RAM and screws up your broadcast when more people connect
; than you can support.
MaxUser=32
