MIB_TCPTABLE structure

The MIB_TCPTABLE structure contains a table of TCP connections for IPv4 on the local computer.

Syntax

typedef struct _MIB_TCPTABLE {
  DWORD      dwNumEntries;
  MIB_TCPROW table[ANY_SIZE];
} MIB_TCPTABLE, *PMIB_TCPTABLE;

Members

dwNumEntries

The number of entries in the table.

table

A pointer to a table of TCP connections implemented as an array of MIB_TCPROW structures.

Remarks

The GetTcpTablefunction retrieves the IPv4 TCP connection table on the local computer and returns this information in a MIB_TCPTABLE structure. An array of MIB_TCPROW structures are contained in the MIB_TCPTABLE structure.

The MIB_TCPTABLE structure may contain padding for alignment between the dwNumEntries member and the first MIB_TCPROW array entry in the table member. Padding for alignment may also be present between the MIB_TCPROW array entries in the table member. Any access to a MIB_TCPROW array entry should assume padding may exist.

On the Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) released for Windows Vistaand later, the organization of header files has changed. This structure is defined in the Tcpmib.h header file, not in the Iprtrmib.h header file. Note that the Tcpmib.h header file is automatically included in Iprtrmib.h, which is automatically included in the Iphlpapi.h header file. The Tcpmib.h and Iprtrmib.h header files should never be used directly.

Examples

The following example retrieves the TCP connection table for IPv4 as a MIB_TCPTABLE structure and prints the state of each connection represented as a MIB_TCPROW structure.
