Total Protection FW on Mac blocking screen sharing and Teamviewer

Recently purchased and installed Total protection on a Mac Mini running Sierra (10.12.6). With FW enabled, I can not access the PC using screen sharing or TeamViewer. Network type is set to "home" in FW settings. 

If I disable the firewall access works. If I enable the OSX FW, access works.

Note: Teamviewer does not use inbound connections. The agent running locally establishes a VPN to the service and communication comes back through that tunnel.

There does not seem to be a way to "whitelist" an application using the FW. 

Has anyone else solved similar issues ?
