This is probably something Rob can comment on.
I've been using FirewallException  to add firewall exception rules
to my application.
Now it feels like this element is somewhat limited in the sense that
I *cannot* add a firewall exception for WMI, namely to:
Name: Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI-In)
Description: Inbound rule to allow WMI traffic for remote Windows
Management Instrumentation. [TCP]
bound to service winmgmt (Windows Management Instrumentation)
A little googling shows a feature request  to allow firewall
exceptions for builtin service, but I don't know what's the status of
it and whether or not it was ever implemented / merged to the
Any idea what's the status on this request, or how can I add firewall
exception to winmgmt?
