You need them to tell you the IP if you're going to connect to them. Dynamic
DNS as Arthur mentions is one way to accomplish this.
An alternative, if it is on-demand help and YOU have a static IP (or can
tell them what it is) is to have their server connect to you. Here's how you
+ Start VNC Viewer on your machine with the -listen commandline option. This
makes VNCViewer run and wait for a server to connect to IT.
+ They need to run the server with the -connect commandline option. When the
IP box pops up, they plug in their IP address.
