MIB_IPMCAST_MFE structure

The MIB_IPMCAST_MFE structure stores the information for an Internet Protocol (IP) Multicast Forwarding Entry (MFE).

Syntax


typedef struct _MIB_IPMCAST_MFE {
  DWORD           dwGroup;
  DWORD           dwSource;
  DWORD           dwSrcMask;
  DWORD           dwUpStrmNgbr;
  DWORD           dwInIfIndex;
  DWORD           dwInIfProtocol;
  DWORD           dwRouteProtocol;
  DWORD           dwRouteNetwork;
  DWORD           dwRouteMask;
  ULONG           ulUpTime;
  ULONG           ulExpiryTime;
  ULONG           ulTimeOut;
  ULONG           ulNumOutIf;
  DWORD           fFlags;
  DWORD           dwReserved;
  MIB_IPMCAST_OIF rgmioOutInfo[ANY_SIZE];
} MIB_IPMCAST_MFE, *PMIB_IPMCAST_MFE;

Members

dwGroup

Type: DWORD

The range of IPv4 multicast groups for this MFE. A value of zero indicates a wildcard group.

dwSource

Type: DWORD

The range of IPv4 source addresses for this MFE. A value of zero indicates a wildcard source.

dwSrcMask

Type: DWORD

The IPv4 subnet mask that corresponds to dwSourceAddr. The dwSourceAddr and dwSourceMask members are used together to define a range of sources.

dwUpStrmNgbr

Type: DWORD

The upstream neighbor that is related to this MFE.

dwInIfIndex

Type: DWORD

The index of the interface to which this MFE is related.

dwInIfProtocol

Type: DWORD

The routing protocol that owns the incoming interface to which this MFE is related.

dwRouteProtocol

Type: DWORD

The client that created the route.

dwRouteNetwork

Type: DWORD

The IPv4 address associated with the route referred to by dwRouteProtocol.

dwRouteMask

Type: DWORD

The IPv4 mask associated with the route referred to by dwRouteProtocol.

ulUpTime

Type: ULONG

The time, in seconds, this MFE has been valid. This value starts from zero and is incremented until it reaches the ulTimeOut value, at which time the MFE is deleted.

ulExpiryTime

Type: ULONG

The time, in seconds, that remains before the MFE expires and is deleted. This value starts from ulTimeOut and is decremented until it reaches zero, at which time the MFE is deleted.

ulTimeOut

Type: ULONG

The total length of time, in seconds, that this MFE should remain valid. After the time-out value is exceeded, the MFE is deleted. This value is static.

ulNumOutIf

Type: ULONG

The number of outgoing interfaces that are associated with this MFE.

fFlags

Type: DWORD

Reserved. This member should be NULL.

dwReserved

Type: DWORD

Reserved. This member should be NULL.

rgmioOutInfo

Type: MIB_IPMCAST_OIF[ANY_SIZE]

A pointer to a table of outgoing interface statistics that are implemented as an array of MIB_IPMCAST_OIF structures.

Remarks

The MIB_IPMCAST_MFE structure does not have a fixed size. Use the SIZEOF_MIB_MFE(X) macro to determine the size of this structure. This macro is defined in the Iprtrmib.h header file.

The dwRouteProtocol, dwRouteNetwork, and dwRouteMask members uniquely identify the route to which this MFE is related.

The MIB_IPMCAST_MFE structure is used by the Multicast Group Manager functions. The MIB_IPMCAST_MFE structure is retrieved using the MgmGetMfe function. An existing MIB_IPMCAST_MFE structure can be modified using the MgmSetMfe function.

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

Requirements

Minimum supported client

None supported

Minimum supported server

Windows 2000 Server [desktop apps only]

Header

Ipmib.h on Windows Server 2008 (include Iphlpapi.h);
Iprtrmib.h on Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000 Server (include Iphlpapi.h)
