    Does this mean someone from IP 185.200.118.78 tried to connect? How can they know the DDNS name or my WAN IP?

    They don’t know your DDNS or WAN IP address. They’re randomly scanning looking for ports that are listening. When they find one, they try and connect, and when it fails, they move one somewhere else. So you shouldn’t be concerned at all, unless they do manage to connect ;)
