PFN_WSK_RECEIVE_FROM callback function

The WskReceiveFrom function receives a datagram and any associated control information from a remote transport address.

Syntax

PFN_WSK_RECEIVE_FROM PfnWskReceiveFrom;

NTSTATUS PfnWskReceiveFrom(
  PWSK_SOCKET Socket,
  PWSK_BUF Buffer,
  ULONG Flags,
  PSOCKADDR RemoteAddress,
  PULONG ControlLength,
  PCMSGHDR ControlInfo,
  PULONG ControlFlags,
  PIRP Irp
)
{...}

Parameters

Socket

A pointer to a WSK_SOCKET structure that specifies the socket object for the datagram socket from which to receive the datagram.

Buffer

A pointer to an initialized WSK_BUF structure that describes the data buffer that receives the datagram from the socket.

Flags

This parameter is reserved for system use. A WSK application must set this parameter to zero.

RemoteAddress

A pointer to a caller-allocated buffer that receives the remote transport address from which the received datagram originated. The buffer must be located in non-paged memory. The buffer must also be large enough to contain the specific SOCKADDR structure type that corresponds to the address family that the WSK application specified when it created the datagram socket. This pointer is optional and can be NULL.

ControlLength

ControlInfo

A pointer to a caller-allocated buffer that receives the control information that is associated with the received datagram. The control information data that is associated with a datagram is made up of one or more control data objects, each of which begins with a CMSGHDR structure. If there is no control information present for the received datagram, the contents of the buffer are undefined. This pointer is optional and can be NULL. If the ControlInfoLength parameter is NULL, the ControlInfo parameter should be NULL.

ControlFlags

A pointer to a ULONG-typed variable that receives the bitwise OR of a combination of the following flags:

MSG_BCAST

The datagram was received as a link-layer broadcast or with a destination transport address that is a broadcast address.

MSG_MCAST

The datagram was received with a destination transport address that is a multicast address.

MSG_TRUNC

The datagram was truncated because the size of the datagram was larger than the size of the buffer that is specified by the Buffer parameter.

MSG_CTRUNC

The control information data was truncated because the number of bytes of control information was greater than the size of the buffer that is specified by the ControlInfo parameter.

This parameter is optional and can be NULL.

Irp

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

Return Value

WskReceiveFrom returns one of the following NTSTATUS codes:

Return code Description
STATUS_SUCCESS
Data was successfully received from the socket. The IRP will be completed with success status. The IoStatus.Information field of the IRP contains the number of bytes that were received.
STATUS_PENDING
The WSK subsystem could not receive the datagram from the socket immediately. The WSK subsystem will complete the IRP after it has received the datagram from the socket. The status of the receive operation will be returned in the IoStatus.Status field of the IRP. If the operation succeeds, the IoStatus.Information field of the IRP will contain the number of bytes that were received.
STATUS_FILE_FORCED_CLOSED
The socket is no longer functional. The IRP will be completed with failure status. The WSK application must call the WskCloseSocket function to close the socket as soon as possible.
Other status codes
An error occurred. The IRP will be completed with failure status.

Remarks

If the WSK application has set a fixed remote transport address for the datagram socket, datagrams that are received from any other remote transport address will be discarded by the WSK subsystem. For more information about setting the remote transport address for a datagram socket, see SIO_WSK_SET_REMOTE_ADDRESS.

If a WSK application's WskReceiveFromEvent event callback function is enabled on a datagram socket and the application also has a pending call to the WskReceiveFrom function on the same datagram socket, then, when datagrams arrive, the pending call to the WskReceiveFrom function will take precedence over the WskReceiveFromEvent event callback function. The WSK subsystem calls the application's WskReceiveFromEvent event callback function only if there are no IRPs queued from pending calls to the WskReceiveFrom function. However, a WSK application should not assume that the WSK subsystem will not call the application's WskReceiveFromEvent event callback function for a datagram socket that has a pending call to the WskReceiveFrom function. Race conditions exist where the WSK subsystem could still call the WSK application's WskReceiveFromEvent event callback function for the socket. The only way for a WSK application to ensure that the WSK subsystem will not call the application's WskReceiveFromEvent event callback function on a datagram socket is to disable the application's WskReceiveFromEvent event callback function on the socket.

If the WskReceiveFrom function returns STATUS_PENDING, the MDL chain that is described in the WSK_BUF structure that is pointed to by the Buffer parameter must remain locked in memory until the IRP is completed. In addition, the variable that is pointed to by the ControlInfoLength parameter, the buffer that is pointed to by the ControlInfo parameter, and the variable that is pointed to by the ControlFlags parameter must also remain valid until the IRP is completed. If the WSK application allocated these buffers or variables 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 these buffers or variables on the stack, it cannot return from the function that calls the WskReceiveFrom function until after the IRP is completed.
