A REMOTE_NDIS_RESET_MSG message is sent to a Remote NDIS device from a host through the control channel to reset the device and return status. This message may be sent at any time that the device is in a state initialized by Remote NDIS. A reset does not affect Remote NDIS message communication with the host. The device typically resets its network-side controller(s) during this process. A Remote NDIS device will respond to a REMOTE_NDIS_RESET_MSG message with a status.
