It seems that your raspberry pi has an internal ip in the range, so when you try to connect to it from the internal network everything works. But as you might know the no-ip client grabs the external ip of your connection and redirects the hostname to this.

Have a look at www.whatismyip.com and you should find your external ip address. That said, you are probably connected to the internet via a router, and to be able to connect to you pi from the "outside" of this router, you will have to do some port forwarding in the router.

As an example: SSH works on port 22, so to be able to ssh to your pi you will need this routing: outsideIP::22 -> Router -> RasberryPiIp:22.

You can find some info on how to forward for different routers here: http://portforward.com/routers.htm

Best luck, B
