Run-time Filtering Layer Identifiers

The run-time filtering layer identifiers are used by kernel-mode callout drivers and are each represented by a locally unique identifier ( LUID), which is 64 bits in size. These identifiers are constant values in the FWPS_BUILTIN_LAYERS enumeration that is defined in Fwpsk.h. These identifiers are defined as follows:

Note  The V4 and V6 suffixes at the end of the run-time layer identifiers indicate whether the layer is located in the IPv4 network stack or in the IPv6 network stack.

Each run-time layer identifier has an associated run-time data field identifier that represents a set of constant values. These data field identifiers are declared as FWPS_FIELDS_XXX enumerations in Fwpsk.h. For more information, see Data Field Identifiers.
