As a query, use the OID_GEN_PROMISCUOUS_MODE OID to determine whether a network interface is promiscuous or not (ifPromiscuousMode from RFC 2863).

Version Information

Windows Vista and later

NDIS 6.0 and later miniport drivers
Not requested. For NDIS interface providers only.


Only NDIS network interface providers, and therefore not miniport drivers or filter drivers, must support this OID as an OID request.

If the interface provider returns NDIS_STATUS_SUCCESS and if the interface accepts only packets that are addressed to that interface, the result value should be FALSE. This value should be TRUE if the interface accepts all network packets.
