Here's the situation. I've got a Cisco E2000 running Tomato which automatically updates DynDNS with my external IP Address, since it's dynamic.
I can use a loopback connection to connect, and I can connect from other computers on my LAN, but I can't connect using the hostname that I set up on DynDNS (xxxxxxxx.dyndns0-remote.com:5800)
I've configured Tomato to forward ports 5800 and 5900 to the IP Address associated with my computer on the LAN. (192.168.x.x), however every open port check website (canyouseeme.org) says that port 5800 and 5900 are both still closed, not open like they should be.
What am I doing wrong? Is it because the hostname on DynDNS is set to re-direct to my ISP's dynamically issued IP Address, and since my computer's IP is an internal IP address (192.168.x.x) it can't obviously re-direct properly?
