The host uses REMOTE_NDIS_QUERY_MSG and REMOTE_NDIS_SET_MSG to control the operation of the Remote NDIS device. An NDIS object ID (OID) is used with each such message to identify a device operational parameter or statistics counter. The lists of Remote NDIS OIDs are broken down into two groups: general OID and 802.3-specific OID. Additionally, each group includes a subsection of statistic OID queries. The general OIDs are required of any networking device.
