Setting up remote assistance behind an adsl router

I have a small network connected to a Safecom adsl router which acts as the DHCP server and does NAT. I shall soon be getting a fixed IP address. Are there problems with using Remote Assistance behind a router with NAT? If so how can I resolve them?
