...its best to get a static IP address from verizon...
I don't want to hijack the thread or anything I just have to say that statics cost a crap load of money I am talking about anything form $70-$200, or more. If you can just set up a server with dyndns.com for free and use your DHCP address. I don't see why you wouldn't want to. So I am going to have to disagree with getting a static.
That is all that I have to say about that. Lets see if we can get back to helping the OP set up his server.
