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.

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?
