No. I was not referring to a static but to a public IP address. If
the user has a public, i. e. internet-routable IP address, everything
is fine, even if it is not static. However, if the user sits behind a
NAT or something similar that blocks incoming connections, a third
party certainly is required (such as a file transfer proxy for XMPP).

Lacking more information from the OP, speculation is all I can do,

Best regards,

One is often kept in the right road by a rut.
