Home PC Access


I am trying to access my home computer from the web over VNC or Microsoft RDP.  I have a machine that will respond to login attempts to over RDP.  I have registered an address and created an account with DynDNS.org.  I have also set port forwarding on my router to take any connection over port 3389 and send it to a local IP address.  

All attempts fail...

I went to http://network-tools.com and tried to ping my cable modem's IP address, that address cannot be resolved and comes up as "request timed out".  I have Comcast for my ISP.  Is there any way around this?
