    I setup a DynDNS free account, setup my Tomato (Victek 1.25.xxx).

    When I input the DNS addess to a browser, it doesn't connect to anythng.
    Did I miss a step in the port forwarding?

    I want the DNS address to point to my NAS box for ftp/web hosting services.

    I'm sure I had this working before either on Tomato or ddwrt.

    DynDNS will forward to your IP. You need to set your router to forward to various ports for ftp, remote desktop or whatever it is you are trying to reach. Then if you are using an ftp client it will be detected and contact the drive you have set up for ftp. You can also use a colon with the port number on the end of the address, for example, I set up to remote desktop to multiple clients on my network so they need to all accept a remote desktop connection at different ports. This would look like: your.DynDNS.address.com:xxxxx where xxxxx is the port of the client you are trying to reach.

    I'm sure you got this right, but for any newcomers doing this and trying to connect to your router's GUI, don't forget to enable remote access and then it's http://myaccount.dyndns.org:8080 to reach it.
