How to create a URL that points to a private IP

I have a broadband LAN at home and my CCTV DVR is one of the devices connected to it. The CCTV DVR has an IP address that allows me to view the screens in a web browser when I am at home. How can I redirect this IP Address to a URL that I type into a web browser when I am using the internet any where outside my home.

Or is there an alternative method you can recommend?

I want to spend as little money as possible accomplishing this.
If you are not aware of any cheap options, please just tell me the ones you know of.

Thanks

Wow, you guys are fast. I will try all these and get back to you.

Techhealth, how should I address the security issues involved?

First thing would be to make sure using a strong authentication (a strong password at a minimal) for your CCTV DVR.  If the device supports HTTPS access, use that too.  Those two things go a long way.  You can make it even better with other things, but for common home use it may not be necessary, unless your CCTV is looking at a gold vault.  :)
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
