DWORD EapPeerProcessRequestPacket(
  [in]  EAP_SESSION_HANDLE  sessionHandle,
  [in]  DWORD               cbReceivedPacket,
  [in]  EapPacket           *pReceivedPacket,
  [out] EapPeerMethodOutput *pEapOutput,
  [out] EAP_ERROR           **ppEapError


[in] sessionHandle

A pointer to an EAP_SESSION_HANDLE structure that contains the unique handle for this EAP authentication session on the EAPHost server. This handle is returned in the pSessionHandle parameter in a previous call to EapPeerBeginSession.

[in] cbReceivedPacket

The size, in bytes, of the request packet specified in pReceivePacket.

[in] pReceivedPacket

A pointer to an EapPacket structure that contains the request packet to process.

[out] pEapOutput

A pointer to an EapPeerMethodOutput structure that contains the output of the packet process operation.

[out] ppEapError

A pointer to a pointer to an EAP_ERROR structure that contains any errors raised during the execution of this function call. After consuming the error data, this memory must be freed by calling EapPeerFreeErrorMemory.

Return value
