Windows 7: Comodo Firewall question

Comodo Firewall question

Just giving this firewall a test at work. I want to set it so that all computers on my local LAN can connect to my testbox (running Comodo) via remote desktop.

Under Firewall, Network Security Policy, I created a global rule that I thought would do it, allowing access to port 3389.

However, when a client tries to connect, they cannot. On the testbox (running comodo), I'm prompted as to whether I want to allow svchost.exe or not.

Do I have to have 2 rules, one allowing 3389 like above and another allowing svchost?

It seems I can create 1 rule, under Application rules for Svchost.exe from any host, to port 3389. Then my Global rule isn't necessary. So, what's the point of the global rule?

Not saying you wont find your answer here, however the Comodo forums most likely will have it.

It's 300+ page manual. For Pete's sake, I'm not going to read that in order to learn a little bit about the product to just get a feel for how it works.

I figured with the number of people on this board who use Comodo, somebody would be able to give me the skinny on the proper way to setup such a simple rule.

I did google for about 30 minutes on this before I posted, but the posts either shared how to set the global rule, or the svchost.exe rule...but never mentioned whether they were both required.
