The FwpmProviderSubscribeChanges0 function is used to request the delivery of notifications regarding changes in a particular provider.
DWORD FwpmProviderSubscribeChanges0( HANDLE engineHandle, const FWPM_PROVIDER_SUBSCRIPTION0 *subscription, FWPM_PROVIDER_CHANGE_CALLBACK0 callback, void *context, HANDLE *changeHandle );
Handle for an open session to the filter engine. Call FwpmEngineOpen0 to open a session to the filter engine.
Type: const FWPM_PROVIDER_SUBSCRIPTION0*
The notifications to be delivered.
Function pointer that will be invoked when a notification is ready for delivery.
Optional context pointer. This pointer is passed to the callback function along with details of the change.
Handle to the newly created subscription.
||The subscription was created successfully.|
||A Windows Filtering Platform (WFP) specific error. See WFP Error Codes for details.|
||Failure to communicate with the remote or local firewall engine.|
Subscribers do not receive notifications for changes made with the same session handle used to subscribe. This is because subscribers only need to see changes made by others since they already know which changes they made themselves.
This function cannot be called from within a transaction. It will fail with FWP_E_TXN_IN_PROGRESS. See Object Management for more information about transactions.
The caller needs FWPM_ACTRL_SUBSCRIBE access to the provider's container and FWPM_ACTRL_READ access to the provider. The subscriber will only get notifications for providers to which it has FWPM_ACTRL_READ access. See Access Control for more information.
FwpmProviderSubscribeChanges0 is a specific implementation of FwpmProviderSubscribeChanges. See WFP Version-Independent Names and Targeting Specific Versions of Windows for more information.
