Lets see if I'm understanding you correctly.  You're running an icecast
server on one of your boxes, but it's stuck behind a NAT router that you
can't configure so no-one can tune in from the outside.  Right?  Seems to
me that the problem lies in the fact that you can't configure your router.
I know it's not helpful, but this problem needs to be solved.  I'd be
surprised if a router was unconfigurable, but hey, what would I know?  A
cheap solution - can you run a linux box as a router?  That would give you
all the configurability you need and more and need not be a powerful box at
