If I need to address a specific computer behind a router how do I do this? That is I have the external ISP IP address and the specific PC's IP assigned by my network.

You will have to configure the route to allow you access?
How do you wish to access the server, using a remote desktop connection ? If so the router would need to be configured to forward traffic on port 3389 from the router to the IP address of the terminal server. Then you would enter the "external ISP address' in the remote desktop connection client and you would be connected directly to the TS.

You could also use a 3rd party tool, if this is permitted by the network admin staff.

This does not require you to modify the router, but though secure, it may be in violation of company policy.
