The NdisIMAssociateMiniport function informs NDIS that the specified lower and upper interfaces for miniport and protocol drivers respectively belong to the same intermediate driver.
void NdisIMAssociateMiniport( NDIS_HANDLE DriverHandle, NDIS_HANDLE ProtocolHandle );
The handle to the miniport driver interface that the NdisMRegisterMiniportDriver function returns.
The handle to the protocol interface that the NdisRegisterProtocolDriver function returns.
Any NDIS intermediate driver that exports both MiniportXxx and ProtocolXxx functions calls NdisIMAssociateMiniport to inform the NDIS library about its miniport upper edge and its protocol lower edge. Such an intermediate driver calls NdisIMAssociateMiniport during its DriverEntry routine. For more information about DriverEntry, see DriverEntry of NDIS Intermediate Drivers.
