You are correct - the option for he free account seems to have disappeared - I wonder when that happened. I hope they do not want to suddenly start changing me for my current free account. I do not know offhand if anyone else offers similar functionality for free.
The problem with using the external IP raw address is that unless you pay for a fixed address it is subject to changing. On a cable connection it changes infrequently, but on an ADSL connection change is very frequent.
