I installed openssh-server openssh-client ssh packages in my PC. I setup an account on noip.com to access my PC from anywhere. And it's working. I started the ssh server on my PC. And then I entered this command on my laptop : ssh omerjerk@*****.no-ip.org (Actual domain hidden). But on my laptop I'm getting connection time out error.

I'm able to connect to the PC within the same LAN using the local IP.

Are you using the laptop inside the same network? If not, your modem/router's firewall could be blocking it. –  papukaija Jul 7 '13 at 17:36
Is your PC directly connected to the Internet? If not, did you enable port forwarding on your router? Can you connect within the same LAN, using the local IP? –  soulsource Jul 7 '13 at 17:37
right now I'm inside the same network. but that's why I used noip to access it from anywhere. –  omerjerk Jul 7 '13 at 17:38
I didn't try port forwarding . I'm able to connect to the PC within the LAN using local IP. –  omerjerk Jul 7 '13 at 17:46

You need to set up your router to forward the port 22 to the local ip address of your laptop (ifconfig show it). The settings should be present inside "NAT" or "Virtual Network" on the page :)

maybe you need to access you router setup some other way, but the part about configuring the forward is most likely spot on. –  mnagel Jul 7 '13 at 19:53
