Good Day!

I already setup dydns account and already setup a ddclient in my linux box. 
When I ping the external IP address given by dydns on my linux box, I received the following error 
"15 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 14008ms "

I tried to ping it in my windows workstation, It works fine. Received reply from the Server. 
But, I tried to connect in windows using ftp myhostname.org, I received the following messages "connected to myhostname.org"
After a while I received the following errors "Connection closed by remote host".

Please help me out, Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks  you.

No you can make ddclient work from behind a NAT router. ddclient has
several ways of figuring out the IP address.  One way is to query a WEB
site that returns the address it sees. This returns the external IP
address of the router.
