I have a server configured at a datacenter in Washington, DC and I am in Indianapolis.  I need to install RRAS on this server.  The problem is that if memory serves me correctly, if I go and enable RRAS after disabling the Windows Firewall, it will immediatly block all ports, causing me to no longer have access to the TS port 3389.  Is there a work around because it costs me 100hr to have their onsite people do work for me there.

Enabling RRAS, automatically disables the Windows firewall. If you loose access to the RRAS server it is more likely because you enabled NAT, within RRAS, when doing so. Are you using RRAS to create a VPN? if so following the instructions in the the link below using the 'custom' option should allow you to safely configure RRAS remotely. I find I sometimes briefly loose the connection when first configured, but can easily log back in a minute later successfully. Having said that it is always risky making networking changes remotely but I appreciate why it is necessary in your case.
