I'm currently trying to stream music through ShoutCast but when i try to connect to my ShoutCast server i'm told that the connection is refused and that i must disable my firewall. However, my firewall is disabled and i have also opend ports 8000-8001 on my router and still i get the error message. Love to see a solution to this one !!!!

Thanks

go into your router and foward only port 8000. set the router config to forward it to your private IP address, so that anything coming through port 8000 will go to you. make sure you have windows firewall and your router firewall off too...

Hawker, thanks for the reply but i'm having problems understanding (forwarding to my private ip), do you have Msn Messenger ? If you do it will be much easier for me.

Thanks
