Registering a Network Direct Provider
Network Direct providers use the same mechanisms defined for Windows Sockets Direct providers to register their providers.
||Network Direct allows exchanging data during connection establishment.|
|iVersion||1||The current version of the Network Direct SPI.|
|iAddressFamily||AF_INET or AF_INET6||Providers that support both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses do not need to register their provider multiple times—a single registration as AF_INET6 is sufficient. The Network Direct framework can support IPv4 and IPv6 addresses being reported simultaneously.|
|iProtocol||0||No protocols are defined by the Network Direct architecture.|
For details on using this information to get an interface to the provider, see Instantiating a Network Direct Provider.
