I'm trying to assign a PUBLIC IP to a computer behind the NAT so I can access it from off site via Internet.

One option, which is common with RRAS, is to assign the IP to your router/firewall and then configuring port forwarding to the RRAS server. When you connect to the routers public IP, the appropriate traffic is automatically forwarded to the server.

I'm setup like this:


T1 ---> Server (Win2k3) ---> Switch ---> Slaves (Client computers that I'm trying to configure Public IP's on )

Sorry Defter, thought you wanted access to the RRAS server, not the PC's behind it. You can configure 1 to 1 NAT within RRAS;

but I don't know that you can configure it to assign these Public IP's to the PC's. Normally they would be connected directly to the Internet. Sorry, personally I don't know how to do that. Perhaps someone else will be able to assist.
What is it that you wish to accomplish, i.e. why do the PC's need a public IP?
