Actually, is he wants to use his Icecast instance from the Internet, the 
hostname SHOULD NOT be set to internal IP (like 192.168.x.x  or 
10.0.0.x). But generally this does not matter for connecting from the 
outside. That is not affected at all by the hostname configured. It's 
important for some things on the web interface and the playlists to work 
properly and especially for yellow page (Icecast directory) listings, so 
it's important it's set correct but does not impact the ability to 
connect to the server.
