That should be possible. The dynamic DNS address is a wan address, whereas the two mac machines are working in your LAN. Should be about the same as internet sharing.. if you wanna connect to that server, if you want to access the files, you can always try to connect to the DynDNS hostname..

Right now all my pc's have thier ip numbers from dhcp and use dynamic dns. So if I need to connect to them from home I can use the dns name. All the Macs on the network have fixed ip's and manual enties in the dns server so I can connect from home with only the name. I would like to be able to use dhcp with the macs but I would need them to dynamicly update the names in dns.

Just set them up as DHCP clients, the DHCP server will automatically take care of DDNS registration if the client machine is unable to do it itself. All our macs (about 300) are set up this way and they work just fine.
