Trouble enabling Avatron Air Display with Bonjour Service


I'm running McAfee Host Intrusion Pevention 7.0.0 under Windows 7 Professional.  I'm trying to use an app on my iPad called "Air Display" by Avatron.  It connects to my PC over a wireless connection. 

It works fine under the following circumstances:

- In the office

- At home ONLY when I disable IPS.

I'm having trouble figuring out how to configure IPS to allow it.  Air Display uses Bonjour Service to connect to the PC.

I have done the following with no success:

- Added both Air Display and Bonjour service to IPS Policy (both "all signatures")

- Added both to "Firewall Policy"

- Added both to "Application Policy"

Note, when I change the Firewall Rule for Bonjour Service to check "Log Matching Traffic" I can see the IP address of my iPad under "Activity Log" when I start the Air Display Support application.

Any suggestions?  Thanks!
