I have a bit of a weird UI problem with setting up a GPO.
I'm working on setting up a policy for :
Windows Firewall: Allow Inbound Remote Desktop exceptions, and I have a list of subnets and IPs that I need to allow for RDP, and disallow everything else.
The is that my list of IPs is longer than what the field under "Allow unsolicied incoming messages from these IP addresses" , is not long enough, and is therefore truncating my list.

I have tried splitting my IP lists into 2 different policies, one that applies to the subnets, and one that contains a host list, but only one (with the higher priority is applying), where  my purpose is for them to actually be merged and apply the entries in both policies. Is there a way to force those policies to merge their exceptions into one list?

Does anyone know of a solution to this? I don't think that editing the registry.pol is a good idea, so I'm looking for a way to do it with GPMC.
