Incoming network connection blocked from own DNS server 2606:4700:4700::1111

Having an issue where my firewall is continually blocking an "inbound" IP from my own DNS. I have a Cloudflare set up (1.1.1.1) in my DNS settings for my wireless TCP/IP connection settings which I assume is the root of the issue (basic set up here). However, I don't see any clear cut way to let McAfee know that this connection is permissible. I've seen the same issue logged a few times in the community (here most recently) but with no resolve. Anyone have any idea on how to allow this to pass as I can only assume this in an unnecessary task for the firewall to be doing, taking up resources as well as needlessly filling up the security log? Thanks in advance for the help! McAfee Total Protection #Firewall @Former Member

Did you try allowing the connections in mcafee firewall settings?

Not sure that I see it in the settings. When I check it doesn't give me the ability to "allow" it.
