I have configured samba and dyndns on my dockstar, I just need to know what are the things to
do in outside client machine(out side LAN) to use the service.

First of all i dont recommend using Samba via Internet because it is kind of an security risk.

But if you want to make it accessible from the Internet a portforward for port 445 from your Router to the dockstar should do the job.
Anyway it is a security risk, better way would be to use it together with an VPN Network on the dockstar like openvpn or tunneling it via SSH.

There are planty guides for this via Google.

Also OpenVPN has the benefit that you can secure yourself against Firesheep Script Kiddies on Public Wifi's.
