So, I guess there's nothing wrong with your icecast or firewall config.

Not knowing this specific router, just my 2 cents. I never use the DMZ in
a router (which typically forwards all connection requests to the given
private IP -- not my personal favorite for Windows machines), but only use
a simple port forward from external port e.g. 8000 to internal IP
192.168.1.44, port 8000. This is usually called "virtual server" or "NAPT
config" or something like that.
If you're using the DMZ setup, maybe the router is also applying some sort
of firewall.

So, first thing to hack around with is your router. Or spend some $20 for
a brand new one with all kinds of useless new features :-)


HTH,

Maarten
