I am assuming that your Portal Gateway is somewhere outside the two
customer networks you are talking about.

The local address or network of the PCs in question should not matter,
what matters is that you set up Portal Host's gateway address to point
to your router's external address (as seen from across the internet).
Assuming you are using port 80, and that these customer PCs can usually
access the internet for web browsing, it will "just work".

Eg, you register a free dynamic dns address at a company like
http://www.dyndns.com/ and install their dns IP updater on the machine
you run the gateway on, you then get your own
"yournamehere.somednsname.com" address that you enter into the host,
and you're all set.
