That is the problem for external connects...thanks.

the .m3u contains ""

which is actually fine for my purposes since I'm not looking
to make this a public stream (I'll just be using it for tunes
at work (via VPN), eventually streaming a live feed from an
XM radio at home).

I've got some more information now after running ethereal:

Itunes in windows will connect and buffer then stop receiving the stream.
Winamp on the same machine will continue accpeting the stream but plays
I'm using 128k stereo oggs.
