 A few things can be not working here.

1> Can you get to http://<you public IP>>:8000/  status screen from outside
your local network?

     a> if no make sure your setting are right and forward both udp and
tcp.  And for good measure forward port 8001.
      b> check the widows firewall permissions, you can temporary disable
them to see if it will work then delve into it to make the port access the
internet and not just local network.
     b> still not working, well I am for a loss of ideas if you cant see
the status screen then there something your router is not doing correctly.
There is to many routers out there to tell the exact way of doing it.

2> ok, you see the status screen, then check make sure you allowing UDP on
both windows firewall and router.

 If that not working then try changing the port to something random to see
it it works, its possible somewhere in your test it being block by another
source.  I have found it blocked by the client firewall, the ISP did not
allow connection to the port, and even the "ip" of the server had changed
between testing.

But one last thing,  allot of routers I have found do not let local loop
back of public IP from inside the network. Meaning, you have to test this
on network outside you private LAN. And you private LAN cannot connect to
you public IP.
