I had read in the answer to this question that the Remote IP Address scope list limit is 1000 in Windows Firewall for a given rule. I am however at 1043 entries in the remote IP Address scope list and still able to add more (both programmatically and interactively through the GUI) without issue. The question/answer specifically referenced Windows Server 2008R2 so I checked the behavior under that OS and it seems like the 1000 limit is not a problem there either.
Is the answer wrong or was there some sort of patch released since that question was asked/answered which upped the limit? I have looked on the internet to see if there is an upper limit to the scope list and have been unable to find any documentation other than the previously mentioned post.
Is there a realistic limit and what is it?
