Restricting RDP with Windows Firewall....but it doesn't work?!


I'm trying to restrict RDP access so that only people on the WAN and LAN can access the terminal services box, along with the possibility of a few external IP addresses. We're on Windows 2008. In Windows Firewall, I've gone into 'Inbound Rule' and chosen RDP->Properties->Scope.

Within the scope, I've added the internal range which is

Then I've added the external IP. Apply, OK.

If I try to log onto remote desktop using the local IP (that's the IP), it won't connect me. If I enter the external IP, then it does.

Does anybody know why this happens? And how this can be fixed?

Thanks a lot
