On a forum someone asked about how to set the group policy setting for Windows 7 clients on a SBS 2008 because they weren’t allowing remote desktop or connecting to wsus.  My first question would be back to that poster… did you join the computers using http://connect ?  Or if this is a migrated box, run the www.sbsbpa.com and ensure that the SBS users are in the Mybusiness organizational unit.  By default SBS 2008 has everything it needs to control/patch/allow remote control to Windows 7.

To edit or add group policies (in particular to the firewall settings) it’s the Vista firewall policies that control those Windows 7 workstations.

A past post about the default group policy http://www.channelprosmb.com/blog/entry/2580/Group-policy-Defaults-for-SBS-2008/ showcases that it’s under the hood and ready to go.
