Surface Pro 3: Wireless Display Adapter/Miracast

If you are having trouble connecting your Surface Pro 3 to the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter AND you have antivirus/firewall software running, try temporarily disabling the firewall. If that allows you to connect, then turn on the firewall again and set a rule/exception to your firewall settings.

Allow:
C:\Windows\System32\WUDFHost.exe
Allow In/Out connections for TCP and UDP, Ports: All.

Here’s how it looks in ESET Endpoint Security

C:\Windows\System32\WUDFHost.exe

And that should allow you to connect to your Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter through your firewall.
