RE McAfee Livesafe firewall blocking “Cast to Device” feature in Windows 10

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 devises found”

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