Quick-n-dirty way is to set your camera to STATIC IP address and then set that IP Address in your router as DMZ.

Not as secure, but worst case someone else gets to watch your furnace fire. :D

If you have a constantly changing IP address, consider a "dynamic dns service" (googleable phrase) Most are free.

DDNS is for the EXTERNAL IP Address. DHCP would be for the internal addresses, DNS server names, etc.

Unless you know something I don't- or are allowing RIP through your private LAN (which I do NOT recommend) ?
