Well, let's see if we can help you troubleshoot it.

First, oasisnewt.ddns.net currently resolves to which is
a public AT&T IP address, so your NO-IP domain is configured
correctly. If you visit
<https://www.google.com/search?q=what+is+my+ip+address> from another
computer on your local network, does it show that same IP address as
your public IP address?

Above you mentioned opening up the HTTPS port in your AT&T firewall.
HTTPS uses port 443, but NPDS only supports HTTP (port 80), so you'd
want to make sure you open the latter. Have you given your Newton a
static IP address on your local network and set up port forwarding for
port 80 (HTTP) in your firewall to that local IP address.

Hope we can help you get it working.
