OK I've said this before but I'll say it again.
Regards setting up the DYN DNS server:
The IP address that is associated with your desired HOST name is your current WAN IP ADDRESS. It is NOT, I repeat, NOT the IP address of your thermostat or any device on your LAN.
IT IS YOUR CURRENT WAN IP ADDRESS.
Before you try to get port forwarding working you need to get the DYN DNS working.
To check that it is working you can use the Windows command line tool I mentioned "nslookup".
You can also see on the DYN DNS setup page on your router that the HOST name is marked as invalid. When your DYN DNS setup is correct this should report that HOST name is valid.
Now regards port forwarding. In one post you showed the "routers" "port forwarding" setup page and on anther post you showed the "virtual server" setup page.
Which approach are you using?
After I know that we can continue.
