  NET_BUFFER_LIST                 *netBufferList,
  UINT16                          layerId,
  UINT64                          context,
  UINT64                          contextTag,
  GUID                            *providerGuid,
  void                            *deviceObject,

  UINT32                          flags
);

Parameters

netBufferList

A network buffer list that indicates one or more packets of interest to the callout driver.

layerId

The identifier of the layer in which the context is being associated. When calling this function from the NDIS receive path, set this parameter to FWPS_LAYER_NON_WFP.

context

Arbitrary context information set by the callout driver. The filter engine will pass this context to the callout driver's FWPS_NET_BUFFER_LIST_NOTIFY_FN0.

contextTag

A locally unique identifier obtained by calling the FwpsNetBufferListGetTagForContext0 function.

providerGuid

TBD

deviceObject

A pointer to the callout driver's device object.

notifyFn

A pointer to the callout driver's FWPS_NET_BUFFER_LIST_NOTIFY_FN0 function. The filter engine will send status notifications to this function.

flags

This parameter is reserved for future use and is set to zero.

Return Value

The FwpsNetBufferListAssociateContext0 function returns one of the following NTSTATUS codes.

Return code Description
STATUS_SUCCESS
The association was successful.
Other status codes
An error occurred.

Remarks

The FwpsNetBufferListAssociateContext0 function associates groups of packets with the callout driver. Packets of interest can be tracked for inspection through multiple layers in the stack.

Before calling this function, the FwpsNetBufferListGetTagForContext0 function must be called to obtain a context tag.

Requirements

   
Windows version Available starting with Windows 7.
Target Platform Universal
Header fwpsk.h (include Fwpsk.h)
