Much much easier


That seems to be working on server side.  How can I know for sure at my server? 
 Also, I have 2 firewalls.
One is hard wired on my router and I have opened up the HTTP service (port 80) 
and the ShoutCast Streaming
service (Ports 8000-8005).  The other is iptables where I have opened up the 
same ports (80 and 8001).  Which
ports in my firewalls can I close?

You will need both to remain.

When you go to the port 80 you will be accessing it with your web browser, but the player (eg: winamp) will be accessing port 8001.
