All that should be necessary to access the stream from the world is to 
open and forward the correct port on your router.

I was looking at this page:
..and it looks pretty straightforward, just click enable, name it 
something like "icecast", punch in the local IP of the machine on the 
LAN running Icecast, then the port it's running on twice (i.e. public & 
private the same), then click always, then apply. You shouldn't need to 
bother with any DMZ stuff or turning off firewalls.

You haven't by any chance got 2 lans, one wired, one wireless, and 
accidentally binded Icecast only to the wired nic, have you?
Just a thought...!
