Summary

The Intel WiDi/Miracast connect display devices and computers in specific wireless networks. This article provides steps on how to configure the Firewall setting in OfficeScan to bypass the network traffic.

Details
Public

When a computer tries to use intel WiDi/Miracast, an additional IP would be assigned to the computer. In most cases, one of following IP ranges is used:

  • 192.168.137.0/24
  • 192.168.16.0/24
  • 192.168.179.0/24
 
The IP range used may be subject to change in different environments.

Then, the endpoint might listen in on the following ports, so that the display device can connect back to the computer.

  • 5353 – UDP
  • 7236 – UDP and TCP
  • 7250 – TCP

If the security level of the Firewall policy is "medium" or "high", the display device may not be able to connect back to computer. As a result, some exceptions should be added:

  1. Open the OfficeScan server web console.
  2. Go to Agents > Firewall > Policies.

    Agents Policies

  3. Add or edit the policy.
  4. Under Exception, click Add.
  5. Refer to following settings to add 3 rules for each IP range:

    Application: All applications
    Action: Allow network traffic
    Direction: Inbound
    Protocol: TCP/UDP
    Port(s): Specific ports: 5353, 7236,7250
    IP address(s): IPv4 address: 192.168.173.0, Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

    If the security level is "high", please add another three (3) outbound exceptions:

    Application: All applications
    Action: Allow network traffic
    Direction: Outbound
    Protocol: TCP/UDP
    Port(s): All ports
    IP address(s): IPv4 address: 192.168.173.0, Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

  6. Go to Agents > Firewall > Profiles.
  7. Add or edit the profile.
  8. Configure or check the policy and target endpoints.
  9. Click Save.
  10. Click Apply Profiles to Agents.
