McAfee Livesafe firewall is blocking the “Cast to Device” feature on my private home network in Windows 10 from working.

 

If I turn off the Livesafe firewall, “Cast to Device” works fine – when I turn the firewall back on, “Cast to Device” ceases to work & responds with “No devices found”

 

MY QUESTION IS:- HOW DO I GET “CAST TO DEVICE” TO WORK without turning off (& thus retaining the protection of )McAfee Livesafe firewall.

 

Any help would be much appreciated - many thanks
