Have the computer the server is on set to a static IP, then put that IP on a DMZ.

i think he means manually set the ip on the server instead of using dhcp. this ensures the ip wont change so you wont have to keep setting it up. go to network connections, right click your network card, go to properties, then go to internet protocol, and fill out all that stuff.
as for the dmz just enable that in the router settings.

I would do port forwarding before you set something up in a dmz
