Maybe I'm missing something here, but are you using the internal or the 
external IP-adres in the <hostname> setting in you icecast.xml file? 
This hostname will be used in URL's generated when using the .m3u 
extention on the mountpoint.

You can check the URL in the admin parts of the admin web interface. It 
is listed as "listenurl".

This would explain why internal hosts can connect, but external hosts can't.
