Can't connect using DynDNS

DNS has nothing to do with whether or not a host supports to pings.
Servers can accept incoming connections even if they are not pingable.
It's most likely that you simply have a firewall between your viewer and
server computers, and that it is blocking both pings and TCP/IP connections
to the server.
