Yep, should be ok.
The external file references will work exactly as before.
If you have hard-coded the IP in a text string somewhere, like a web viewer or a script step, that's different. If you have FileMaker Advanced you can generate a DDR and search for those.

For the most part, FM supports failovers as well, where you can list multiple paths to a related file. So aside from "should be ok", you can also list two paths to the source just in case one doesn't work.
The best order is local > LAN IP > DNS > WAN IP, EG:
Note that some performance can be lost while waiting to check each file to see if it can be opened. You can take care of this by "opening" the external file as part of the login script. Once connected, the speed is no longer limited by the check for the source.
