Sonicwall  TZ100 RDP client session traffic priority

Greetings,

If possible, I would like to prioritize my RDP client session traffic thru my Sonicwall TZ100. We have an office with approx. 10 users connecting with  Remote Desktop connections (RDP client)  to a  remote office running a Remote Services  Server. There are approx. 20 users overall but only 10 utilize RDP. The office only has a fractional T1 (1.5 / 1/5) WAN connection. The RDP users are sporadically experiencing  very slow performance.

 Is there a way to prioritize the RDP session traffic over all other traffic to ensure we get the best RDP session performance?

To clarify: The office with the 10 RDP client users is the office I would like to prioritize the traffic with the Sonicwall TZ100.

Thank for your time.

Thank you for responding Infamus.
I did configure sonicwall settings per the link with no improvement in speed of Remote Desktop performance. I am not sure this article covers what I need since I need to apply the BWM from the office that has the remote users....not the office where the Remote Server is located.
I don't receive any traffic stats from the Access Rule I created which makes me think it's not working correctly - I've attached a screenshot.
I'm not sure the mstsc.exe uses the term services port 3389 on the client pc...it may be just going out on port 80?

How are the two offices connected?

Are you just allowing RDP on the firewall via internet or do they use VPN to connect to the remote site then RDP?

Is this WAN a internet connection?
