The IFWXSocket interface is the Microsoft Firewall service socket interface.
For more information about how the IFWXSocket interface is used in application filters, see Filter Object Model.
The IFWXSocket interface inherits from the IUnknown interface. IFWXSocket also has these types of members:
The IFWXSocket interface has these methods.
Closes the socket.
Receives a buffer asynchronously. It performs an overlapped receive (or receive from operation, depending on the socket type).
Sends a buffer asynchronously. It performs an overlapped send operation.
Sends a buffer asynchronously on UDP sockets to a specific address. It performs an overlapped sendto operation.
Starts transport shutdown on the socket.
This interface does not necessarily correspond to a network socket. It allows data filters to work with the data that is flowing through the socket by using a socket-like interface. A network socket implements the IFWXNetworkSocket interface. For more information about sockets and socket interfaces, see Socket Objects.
