On this vodafone http://help.vodafone.co.nz/app/answers/detail/a_id/24987/~/port-forwarding-on-a-vodafone-modem website it says you need a static ip to port forward on vodafone. Can I use a service like no-ip to get around this and my port forwards will still work?

If they're not using CGNAT and you're just on a dynamic address, then port forwarding should work - and no-ip.org will run happily.

 

If on CGNAT, I dont know enough about it (or yet to come across anyone on it) to know if no-ip would work.

Yeah, you'll be fine using No-Ip.org, I used to all the time, just ensure you download the program to auto update it when your IP changes.

Yes, you can.

Yes, that's correct, you do not need a static IP. Tagging in @mikehales to see if it can be corrected.

Just be careful with security.

 

The internet is full of scanners who troll the internet remorselessly checking for any vulnerable spots and port forwarding into your home network is a danger area.

What exactly are you trying to port forward and why?

Usually port https 443 for a public reachable webserver (you should deviate port 80 http to 443 as well) which must be carefully secured and after all checked i.e. with https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/ (better to disable publishing of the results on the board for the first). If you can reach at least an A, better an A+ rating, it is good enough. Otherwise try until reach or forget the whole thing. The net is full of unsecure servers which could easily be hijacked.
