FWPS_VSWITCH_INTERFACE_EVENT_CALLBACK0 callback function

The filter engine calls the vSwitchInterfaceEventNotifyFn (FWPS_VSWITCH_INTERFACE_EVENT_CALLBACK0) callout function to notify the callout driver about events that are associated the virtual switch interface.

Note  FWPS_VSWITCH_INTERFACE_EVENT_CALLBACK0 is a specific version of FWPS_VSWITCH_INTERFACE_EVENT_CALLBACK. See WFP Version-Independent Names and Targeting Specific Versions of Windows for more information.

Syntax

FWPS_VSWITCH_INTERFACE_EVENT_CALLBACK0 FwpsVswitchInterfaceEventCallback0;

NTSTATUS FwpsVswitchInterfaceEventCallback0(
  void *notifyContext,
  void *completionContext,
  FWPS_VSWITCH_EVENT_TYPE eventType,
  const NDIS_SWITCH_PARAMETERS *vSwitch,
  const NDIS_SWITCH_NIC_PARAMETERS *vSwitchNic
)
{...}

Parameters

*notifyContext

A pointer to a context provided by the callout driver. The driver passed this pointer to the notifyContext parameter of the FwpsvSwitchEventsSubscribe0 function. This parameter is optional and can be NULL.

*completionContext

A pointer to a completion context provided by the callout driver. This parameter is optional and can be NULL.

eventType

The type of virtual switch event specified as one of the FWPS_VSWITCH_EVENT_TYPE enumeration values. For more information, see Remarks.

*vSwitch

A pointer to an NDIS_SWITCH_PARAMETERS structure that contains information about a virtual switch.

Note  The information in the NDIS_SWITCH_PARAMETERS structure reflects the initial state of the virtual switch, not necessarily its current state. In particular, the NumSwitchPorts and IsActive members might still have their initial value of zero, unless a virtual switch PnP event has been triggered. Current state information can be found in the other parameters to this callback function.
 

*vSwitchNic

A pointer to an NDIS_SWITCH_NIC_PARAMETERS structure that specifies the parameters for a virtual miniport adapter that is connected to a virtual switch port.

Return Value

A callout's

FWPS_VSWITCH_INTERFACE_EVENT_CALLBACK0 function returns one of the following NTSTATUS codes.

Return code Description
STATUS_SUCCESS
The callout driver accepts the notification from the filter engine.
Other status codes
An error occurred.

Remarks

A callout driver registers a
vSwitchInterfaceEventNotifyFn function by calling
the FwpsvSwitchEventsSubscribe0 function.

If the eventType parameter is set to WPS_VSWITCH_EVENT_INTERFACE_CREATE, a new network connection between a virtual switch port and a network adapter is completely established. The vSwitchNic parameter identifies an NDIS_SWITCH_NIC_PARAMETERS structure that contains information about the virtual network adapter that is connected to the virtual switch port.

If the eventType parameter is FWPS_VSWITCH_EVENT_INTERFACE_DISCONNECT, the connection between a virtual switch port and a network adapter is being torn down. After the connection has been completely torn down, the WFP filter driver will call vSwitchInterfaceEventNotifyFn with FWPS_VSWITCH_EVENT_INTERFACE_DELETE set in the eventType parameter.
