You can make this in the OU where computers accounts are located for the computer you want to enable RDP.

Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Network > Network Connections > Windows Firewall > Domain Profile > Windows Firewall: Allow Remote Desktop Exception

Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Terminal Services > Allow users to connect remotely using Terminal Services


Allowing through the firewall - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb490626.aspx

Here a page with the same info.

And another way to enable with registry values.

You can define these settings in GPo too.
