I'm trying out different DDNS services. While testing from a different network,I realise that I cannot access my network via the hostname. Neither can I access via the IP (dynamic one, hence the use of DDNS). But I check my router settings and use nslookup to find an ip. typing this IP in my browser allows me to connect. In the router settings, it shows up under list of DNS servers.

What should I do for my DDNS to work without hassle? Is it coz the browser doesn't take enough time to resolve the ip? Sincerely confused!

Do you have the router RIP protocol enabled? If the router does not communicate to the network that It's there no one can find it. Please see the thread at the top of the networking forums and please post the requested information.
