Using .NET System.Management through Vista Firewall

In order to use .NET System.Management namespace against a remote Vista system, I had to enable a few settings on the remote system firewall. I made these changes via AD group policy. Here are the settings:

On the Firewall Group Policy, Created a new Inbound rule using the Wizard. Selected the Predefined Remote Administration set.

Enabled them for only my local subnet.

Then under the Network\Network Connections\Windows Firewall\Domain Profile settings of the group policy, enabled "Allow inbound remote administration exception". Then enabled that for only my local subnet.
