Certainly it needs fixed IP addresses internally, otherwise you don't
know for sure where to port forward to!
If the router will port forward without having a fixed outside IP
address from the ISP then fair enough you should be able to get it to
work, but the OP will need to know what the dynamic outside IP
address is at the time. Just clicking on http://whatismyip.com/ will
provide this information. Mine is provided by Virgin Media. It only
changes rarely but it does change.
I'll try to find time to look on the setup page on my router when I
get home tonight. That will be in about six hours I expect. It did
have to be flashed a few months (or was it a year or two :-) ) ago so
the port forwarding arrangements might have changed with the new firmware.
