Wi-Fi Direct no reconnect at Windows 10 start-up

Product Name: Xerox B310 Printer
Operating System: Windows 10

Hello,

I don’t have my own W-Fi Network, so I used Wi-Fi Direct to connect my new B310 to Windows-laptop.
As described here https://www.support.xerox.com/en-us/article/en/SrGXygP6pa10xAkB1UQiP6
after the click on Show Wi-Fi Direct printers the printer was listed and the driver installed automatically. So far so good – I could print.
But after restart of windows the printer does not work – it is shown OFFLINE!
XeroxSmartStart_1.6.28.0 also can’t find it, even if I enter the IP: 10.3.2.1.
The only thing that helps is a new installation as described above. So I have to install the printer after every Windows start-up, if I want to use it.
I tried to add fMinimizeConnections=0 to HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WcmSvc\GroupPolicy as described here
https://forum.support.xerox.com/t5/Printing/WPS-PIN-for-Wi-Fi-Direct-on-VersaLink-C405dn/m-p/231616
but it does not help.
I appreciate any help.
Many thanks in advance.
Boris

Hello _boba_

I see no one has responded to this post yet. So, at this point I would recommend contacting your local Xerox Support Department to speak with a Product Specialist for more assistance. Please call 1-800-821-2797 or 1-800-835-6100.   

Thanks,

Try disabling the firewall and see if it works for you. if it works then you can build a rule either for the application or for the port number.
