I'm currently deploying the Windows Firewall through Group Policy.  My problem is that if the firewall is on I cannot connect to the workstations using the SMS Remote Tools utility.  I've gone through the Microsoft KB 826852 and added the ports to the Define Port Exceptions Properties in the Windows Firewall Group Policy settins and I still cannot connect.

I believe my syntax is correct, the following is an example of my syntax:

2701:TCP:"*":enabled:SMS Remote Control

Any ideas?
