Tomcat --- Deploy Web site on Home Computer (Dynamic IP)

Hi, all expert.
I would like to set up a web server using my home computer by using Tomcat 4.1.
The web server is behind a router.
I have changed the port from 8080 to 80.
It works fine when I type: http://localhost/ (show the index.jsp page) on the local machine but not outside.
However, I want to deploy my web site on the Internet, so that the public can access my home computer.
My ISP provides me a dynamic IP. I have registerd a domain name in no-ip.com. It is vincehon.no-ip.com
My question is :
WHAT configs should I set in tomcat to allow people on the Internet view my web site when they type
"http://vincehon.no-ip.com/" ?
If I do not using router (the web server connect to the Internet directly), are the settings the same ?
I have set the NAT in my sercom router.
