You're going to need to turn on port forwarding in your router to do this.

From the internet, you'll need to do:
http://abc.dyndn.org:1234

the 1234 is an arbitrary port you can select.

In your router, you'll need to forward port 1234 to 192.168.1.2 (usually found in the application and gaming section of the router).

So when you enter http://abc.dyndn.org:1234 from a browser, it comes to your router, and the router will route this request to 192.168.1.2. Otherwise your firewall will just filter off what you are trying to do as you dyndns address is for your router, not your PC (assuming you're using a router here).

Are you using a router connected to the internet?

If so, you'll need to forward that port through. It sounds like the router firewall is rejecting it. As a quick test, I'd turn off the firewall in the router, and see if it works (keep in mind that you have no protection from the WAN at this time, so don't leave it off).

You can also try configuring a demilitry zone (DMZ) for that PC. That should let all ports pass straight into that PC as well.

If either of those work, then you just need to configure the router a little differently to pass it. My linksys has port range forwarding that can forward say port 9000 on the WAN to port 9000 on the LAN. I think during normal operation, the common ports (80 for HTTP, 21 for FTP, etc) all passed through, but the non-common ones get stripped going through the router.
