New WSUS on Windows Server 2012 - Windows 7 Snap In ?

Greetings. I've migrated WSUS to our new Windows 2012 R2 server.  All is well.  On my Windows 7 workstation, I am still able to use the existing mmc snap-in to manage the WSUS server.  However, it says "WSUS 3.0".  Is there a new snap-in somewhere to manage it as it currently is ?  (Version 6.3.9600.16384).  Or am I resigned to managing it directly from my 2012 server ?

It appears that Windows 7 does not have the capability to remotely manage the Server 2012 WSUS.  You will have to log into the Server in order to manage the WSUS or you will have to upgrade from Windows 7.

Thanks for the link. Technically true, but I was able to set up Remote Desktop Services with RemoteApp and publish Server Admin to my Windows 7 machine. Works fairly well.
