Sounds like if you are testing this in the same place where the server is that your router may not be doing “loopback”.. ask a friend to test it from their end, or at least reboot the router (some are fussy things)
You can also test your ports externally from here:

Subject: [Icecast] Help with port forwarding

I'm using a windows computer as an icecast server. I can successfully access my stream on my local network using In my netgear router I set up a port forward from external port 8000 to, but when I try to access my stream using <my public ip>:8000/stream the connection times out. 

I've set up firewall rules to allow icecast, and even tried temporarily disabling the firewall. What else could be causing this?
