Do I have to configure my firewall and router?

Not if you have a Home or Professional subscription.

The answer is also no if you have an Enterprise subscription and only wish to establish cloud connections to a particular computer.

If you have an Enterprise subscription and wish to establish direct connections over the public Internet, then it is very likely you will need to configure firewalls and port forward routers, assign static private IP addresses, and arrange for static public IP addresses. It really is much easier to establish cloud connections!
