check if port 8020 is mapped in your router to the internal ip of your
server an the same port your icecast server uses.

yes, use an proxy in your web browser. your isp might provide a http
proxy. or use some anonymizer-proxy. they will route your request to the
outside and back to the external ports of your router.
testing the web-interface is sufficient. not all players can be
configured for proxy access etc.
If the web interface works, everything else will work too.
