Hi there.

I think (but i may be wrong) trouble with ftp is that it use 2 ports,
one for data, the other for commands. 

On passive mode, you will still need an open port on the ftp server to
get client connection, the difference will be in which computer will
start the connection for data socket (port 20).

Whatever the mode, ftp server will have to listen on port 21.

Icecast use only 1 port, so all you have to do is to accept connection
on port 8000. There shall be no active/passive trouble such as ftp.

Well, at least this is how i imagine things are , are they not ? :)
