miracast blocked by Avast
« on: November 13, 2019, 09:29:37 PM »
Miracast works flawlessly without the Avast Firewall enabled. This convoluted piece of shit doesn't know what miracast is?   What do I need to do to get Miracast running? What application do I need to pass through? Why cant I open ports with some sort of ease ? Please do not tell me to switch it to Private. That has been done.  I am up to date 19.8.4793.544.

Is Internet Connection Sharing Mode enabled via Settings > Protection > Firewall

You would need to restart the device after in some cases.
