I have to setup a home server. I have created a DynDNS account and updated the software.

I have set the dynamic dns option in router and while I ping my dyndns account it is redirecting to my router page and not to the localhost.

My router is a Starcom WA3002G4.

Few routers honor port forwarding rules when the source is within the LAN. Configure your browser to use a proxy on the Internet for your network then try again.

You need to port forward the ports you want accessible to the outside world (probably port 80).

Have you configured the router to forward traffic to the server? I don't know how to do it on youre router, but it shouldn't be particularly difficult. Some routers allow the creation of a "DMZ" or have built in processed for publishing to the internet.
