Firewall blocking SMB connection

I have my windows pc sharing an external harddrive thats attached to it as a smb share for infufe.


Whenever I have my mcafee 2013’s firewall enabled the connection fails, does anyone have a solution to this?



PS: When I am able to get connected its because I found the only possible way is to have a user account password. is there anyway to not have a user account password and leave that field blank on the apple tv and get a connection?


Help is greatly appreciated!
