[Icecast] behind a router

I'd personally only use the bind atribute if you realy need to stop it from 
binding to a specific interface, otherwise you could well come unstuck 
(e.g. can only hear internally but not externally or vice versa).  Not 
specifying a bind atribute should cause it to bind to all interfaces.

And the hostname thing only matters if you use Icecast's generated 
playlists (i.e. http://server:port/mountpoint.m3u) otherwise it doesn't 
make any difference (IIRC).

As a start with your diagnosis, I suggest looking at your logs for when you 
tried to connect from outside.  If you don't see anything at all, then your 
client connection wasn't reaching Icecast at all.
