Is it possible to edit the settings of a firewall grouping (such as "Active Directory Domain Services") in the Windows 2008 firewall?

I want to specify only certain subnets can access a service such as the AD Domain Services andit seems the only option is to edit each inbound rule to add the subnet rules.  Is there a better way?

I don't believe you can. you would be better off greating GPO's for each policy/group and use IPSEC to allow/disallow access to ip's.

I ended up going with a third-party firewall that allowed easier rule implementation.
