SMS 2003 port exceptions for Windows Firewall

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?

You probably need 2702 as well
2703 and 2704 are used by SMS as well.  so you might want to add all 4...

The port I had listed above was 1 example of the many ports I opened.  Using the KB I previously mentioned I opened all the required ports.  I'm curious if my syntax is correct and also if there is any other exceptions I need to list.  I am running SMS 2003 SP3 so I don't believe the other article applies either.
