Now, I am not an expert but I just don't see how this would work.
192.168.x.x addresses are for private networks. Therefore, I can have a address, as well as any other person that has a 192.168.x.x

In this case, how would DynDNS know which one of the thouzand addresses it should route to?

As far as I know, as designed the 192.168.x.x (and such) addresses are
not to be publicly routable...

But I could be wrong!! :)
