Configuring Per User & Application Firewall Rules Using Windows Server 2008

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
 There has been a requirement from a client to get per user firewall rules including
 application configured on a Windows Server 2008 boxes which are going to have
 Terminal Services installed on the members sever boxes in a domain.

 My understanding is that these features are only available on Windows Server 2008 R2,
 only, is that correct? Plus only Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003 clients can
 utilise these per user firewall rules include application features. Can someone
 please clarify the above for me as there seems to be some confusion every corner
 I turn? Apparently this is supposed to be part of Advanced Firewall in Win2K8?
