[Icecast] Config and other areas of struggle

Hi all,
OK, this stuff about internal and external IP addresses is confusing me. I always thought that an internal IP address (192.168.x.x) was for running things on a network, and an external for running things on the internet.
I use 192.168.1.254 to log into my router and have forwarded port 28888 (8000 is already being used by another server I’m running) for Icecast, as specified in the <listen-socket> section. The router doesn’t ask me for an IP address, but instead gives me a list of connected machines.
My config file is below.
<icecast>
<location>Wherever</location>
<admin>contact</admin>
<hostname>home.dayme.me</hostname> <!-- home.dayme.me resolves to my machine's external IP address (81.174.146.88), which is static. -->

<limits>
<clients>100</clients>
<sources>2</sources>
<queue-size>524288</queue-size>
<client-timeout>30</client-timeout>
<header-timeout>15</header-timeout>
<source-timeout>10</source-timeout>
<burst-size>65535</burst-size>
</limits>

<authentication>
<source-password>blah</source-password>
<relay-password>whatever</relay-password>
<admin-user>admin</admin-user>
<admin-password>ahem-ahem</admin-password>
</authentication>

<listen-socket>
<port>28888</port>
</listen-socket>

<http-headers>
<header name="Access-Control-Allow-Origin" value="*" />
</http-headers>

<fileserve>1</fileserve>

<paths>
<logdir>./log</logdir>
<webroot>./web</webroot>
<adminroot>./admin</adminroot>
<alias source="/" destination="/status.xsl"/>
</paths>

<logging>
<accesslog>access.log</accesslog>
<errorlog>error.log</errorlog>
<loglevel>3</loglevel> <!-- 4 Debug, 3 Info, 2 Warn, 1 Error -->
<logsize>10000</logsize> <!-- Max size of a logfile -->
<logarchive>1</logarchive>
</logging>
</icecast>

Cheers.
