Yes there is a difference.
There are 2 versions.
1} HIPS for Servers 2} HIPS for Desktops.
Server version is known as :- HIS> Host Intrusion for Servers.
Desktop version is known as ;- HID > Host Intrusion for Desktops.
The functionalities also differ. You might want to take a look at the products guides to get more info about the same. HID is included with the Total protection for Endpoint versions of the McAfee. The Server version has to be bought seperately.
Yes Sameer, from a Product point of view they are 2 seperate solutions but in actuallity it is the same software. They share the same product/installation guide as well and unfortuantely, there is no mention of the differences when running on a workstation vs server.

You should add the appropriate rule to your applied fw policy.
