Firewall blocking ability to print on a wireless printer

I have a problem printing on a new Canon wireless printer from my Lenovo laptop.  I have read the solutions, and none seem to work.

My laptop uses Windows 10

My printer is a Canon Pixma TR4551 

The printer works - I can print from my phone, and from my laptop if McAfee firewall is disabled - but I can't print if the firewall is on.

This much I know after two support calls with Canon - one for 90 minutes and one for 60 minutes.

Help - I pay a lot for McAfee, and I'd really like it not to mess up my printing.
