PFN_WSK_CONTROL_CLIENT callback function

The WskControlClient function performs control operations on a WSK client object.

Syntax

PFN_WSK_CONTROL_CLIENT PfnWskControlClient;

NTSTATUS PfnWskControlClient(
  PWSK_CLIENT Client,
  ULONG ControlCode,
  SIZE_T InputSize,
  PVOID InputBuffer,
  SIZE_T OutputSize,
  PVOID OutputBuffer,
  SIZE_T *OutputSizeReturned,
  PIRP Irp
)
{...}

Parameters

Client

A pointer to a WSK_CLIENT structure that was returned through the WskProviderNpi parameter of the WskCaptureProviderNPI function.

ControlCode

The control operation that is being performed. A WSK application can specify one of the following control codes:

WSK_TRANSPORT_LIST_QUERY

Retrieve a list of available network transports.

WSK_TRANSPORT_LIST_CHANGE

Receive notification of a change to the list of available network transports.

WSK_CACHE_SD

Obtain a cached copy of a security descriptor.

WSK_RELEASE_SD

Release a cached copy of a security descriptor.

WSK_SET_STATIC_EVENT_CALLBACKS

Enable specified event callback functions automatically on all sockets.

WSK_TDI_DEVICENAME_MAPPING

Map combinations of address family, socket type, and protocol to device names of TDI transports.

WSK_TDI_BEHAVIOR

Control whether the WSK subsystem will divert network I/O to TDI transports.

InputSize

The number of bytes of data in the buffer that is pointed to by the InputBuffer parameter.

InputBuffer

A caller-allocated buffer that supplies any input data that is required to perform the specified control operation. If no input data is required for the specified control operation, the WSK application should set this parameter to NULL and set the InputSize parameter to zero.

OutputSize

The size, in bytes, of the buffer that is pointed to by the OutputBuffer parameter.

OutputBuffer

A caller-allocated buffer that receives any output data that is returned by the specified control operation. If no output data is returned by the specified control operation, the WSK application should set this parameter to NULL and set the OutputSize parameter to zero.

*OutputSizeReturned

A pointer to a ULONG-typed variable that receives the number of bytes of data that is returned in the buffer that is pointed to by the OutputBuffer parameter. A WSK application should set this pointer to NULL except when all of the following are true:

  • The Irp parameter is NULL.
  • The operation that is being performed returns output data in the buffer that is pointed to by the OutputBuffer parameter.
  • The number of bytes of output data that is returned by the operation that is being performed is unknown.

Irp

A pointer to a caller-allocated IRP that the WSK subsystem uses to complete the control operation asynchronously. For more information about using IRPs with WSK functions, see Using IRPs with Winsock Kernel Functions.

This parameter is required, is optional, or must be NULL, depending on the particular client control operation that is being performed. For more information about the requirements for this parameter for each of the supported client control operations, see WSK Client Control Operations.

Return Value

WskControlClient returns one of the following NTSTATUS codes:

Return code Description
STATUS_SUCCESS
The control operation completed successfully. If the WSK application specified a pointer to an IRP in the Irp parameter, the IRP will be completed with success status.
STATUS_PENDING
The WSK subsystem could not complete the control operation immediately. The WSK subsystem will complete the IRP after it has completed the control operation. The status of the control operation will be returned in the IoStatus.Status field of the IRP.
STATUS_BUFFER_OVERFLOW
The output buffer is not large enough to contain the returned data. The variable that is pointed to by the OutputSizeReturned parameter contains the required buffer size.
Other status codes
An error occurred. The IRP will be completed with failure status.

Remarks

For more information about how the input and output buffers are used for each client control operation, see WSK Client Control Operations.

If the WskControlClient function returns STATUS_PENDING, any buffers that are pointed to by the InputBuffer parameter or the OutputBuffer parameter must remain valid until the IRP is completed. If the WSK application allocated the buffers with one of the ExAllocateXxx functions, it cannot free the memory with the corresponding ExFreeXxx function until after the IRP is completed. If the WSK application allocated the buffers on the stack, it cannot return from the function that calls the WskControlClient function until after the IRP is completed.

Note  TDI will not be supported in Microsoft Windows versions after Windows Vista. Use Windows Filtering Platform or Winsock Kernel instead.
