I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 and I setup remote desktop and I am able to access it from within the office but would like to access it offsite. How would do this?

Your going to have to forward the ports from within your router or firewall.  But I'd highly suggest using non standard ports at a minimum to keep some semblance of security.

This might help too:

internet (external IP/port 28483) --> router (forwards port 28482 to internal IP 192.168.0.1/port 3389)

Preferably do it through a firewall, using a fire wall NAT your internal IP to the public IP

Example: your IP 192.168.0.42
Public Ip 14.140.41.238
use the NAT or Virtual IP feature in your firewall.

For a router do a port forwarding

if you want to do this directly: provide a direct internet to your server & assign the public IP to the second network Port. (This is not recommended) if not secured your serer will be exposed to external network & there are many threats.
