However, it does confirm that the binding enumeration function works. The driver’s protocol section will then make an NdisRequest call to query information on the specified OID and fill the user’s output buffer with the returned information. However, its use is vital in many situations. However, there are pros and cons with each interface approach. The companion code is intended to help the reader derive and improve their own NDIS Intermediate driver for Windows platforms. The user-space programs use class names resource information corresponding to values in PassThru. However, these errors are trivial to fix:.

The key user-mode function added at this step is the PtOpenControlChannel function. Later articles in this series will describe additional extensions to PassThru. This article consists of an overview of design issues, followed by comments by Thomas and James about their drivers and the companion applications.

This article will illustrate how to extend PassThru so that it can block packets sent to or received from specific IP addresses. At this point we can add code that open and closes a handle on the PassThru device symbolic link. When a user-mode handle is closed there will be some work to do in the DevCleanup and DevClose routines. There are two important things to notice about this function:. In each extendjng path it may be necessary to use different representations of the same data structure.

The driver samples in this directory provide a starting point for writing a custom network driver for your device. Before long bit extended systems extenring should be available in most online and walk-in computer stores. This means that there can never be more then one call to MPQueryInformation in progress on any PassThru binding at any given time.


There are a few additional details to attend to. Click here to view Win32 code to query and display binding names. In addition, there is the PassThru. Extendkng at your own risk.

I believe that there is even an Athlon 64 notebook in the works Demonstrates the functionality of an NDIS miniport driver without requiring a physical network adapter.

This article and the companion code are intended to be used for the benefit of the reader of this article.

Extening filename is a file that contains the NDIS name of the lower adapter to be used followed by the list of dotted IP addresses to block on the adapter.

The decision to forward or to drop is made by FilterPacket in FilterRtns. Hopefully the problem that must be dealt with is becoming clear.

Of course you will need a bit development system. Then we provide two functions that manipulate the RefCount:. Redistribution and use in source and binary forms, with or without modification, are permitted provided that the following conditions are met:.

Finally, FilterPacket does a binary search of that list and says to drop the packet if the packet is for Send and the destination IP address matches or if the packet is for Receive and the source IP address matches. Of extendibg significance is that if NDIS unbinds all adapters on the PassThru driver and attempts to unload the driver, the unload will not happen until all handles on the Iim device are closed.


Add a new DevRequestComplete handler, extendign is the request-specific handler for Wininitiated requests. Adapter-specific operations which we haven’t yet invented The driver registers IRP-based functions that are eventually called to implement the kernel-mode end of the interface.

Sources to the modified PassThru driver and the companion test application are available for download. If you attempt to ndiz the extended PassThru driver from Part 2 of this article series you will encounter three errors. Microsoft has now publicly released a Windows XP Bit preview version free for the download.

One starts PerfMon, right-clicks on the data window, chooses Add Counters, chooses PassThru Statistics from the Performance object drop-down list and selects the particular measure s of interest. Copyright c Printing Communications Associates, Inc. At the same passsthru, for a free code like this it is essential that you understand that the authors do not provide any warranty whatsoever that the sample code is fit passsthru any purpose whatsoever.

The program to get statistics packets seen, packets dropped is PassThruStats.
