The SetIpForwardEntry2 function sets the properties of an IP route entry on a local computer.
- Route [in]
A pointer to a MIB_IPFORWARD_ROW2 structure entry for an IP route entry. Your driver must set the DestinationPrefix member of the MIB_IPFORWARD_ROW2 structure to a valid IP destination prefix and family, set the NextHop member of MIB_IPFORWARD_ROW2 to a valid IP address and family, and specify the InterfaceLuid member or the InterfaceIndex member of MIB_IPFORWARD_ROW2.
SetIpForwardEntry2 returns STATUS_SUCCESS if the function succeeds.
If the function fails, SetIpForwardEntry2 returns one of the following error codes:
An invalid parameter was passed to the function. This error is returned if a NULL pointer is passed in the Route parameter, the DestinationPrefix member of the MIB_IPFORWARD_ROW2 structure that the Route parameter points to was not specified, the NextHop member of the MIB_IPFORWARD_ROW2 structure was not specified, or both InterfaceLuid and InterfaceIndex members of the MIB_IPFORWARD_ROW2 structure were unspecified.
The specified interface could not be found. This error is returned if the function cannot find the network interface that is specified by the InterfaceLuid or InterfaceIndex member of the MIB_IPFORWARD_ROW2 structure that the Route parameter points to.
Use the FormatMessage function to obtain the message string for the returned error.
The SetIpForwardEntry2 function is used to set the properties for an existing IP route entry on a local computer.
Your driver must initialize the following members of the MIB_IPFORWARD_ROW2 structure that the Row parameter points to.
- InterfaceLuid or InterfaceIndex
These members are used in the order that is listed earlier. So if InterfaceLuid is specified, this member is used to determine the interface. If no value was set for the InterfaceLuid member (the value of this member was set to zero), the InterfaceIndex member is next used to determine the interface.
The route metric offset that is specified in the Metric member of the MIB_IPFORWARD_ROW2 structure that Route parameter points to represents only part of the complete route metric. The complete metric is a combination of this route metric offset added to the interface metric that is specified in the Metric member of the MIB_IPINTERFACE_ROW structure of the associated interface. A driver can retrieve the interface metric by calling the GetIpInterfaceEntry function.
SetIpForwardEntry2 ignores the Age and Origin members of the MIB_IPFORWARD_ROW2 structure that the Row parameter points to. These members are set by the network stack and cannot be changed by using the SetIpForwardEntry2 function.
The SetIpForwardEntry2 function fails if the DestinationPrefix and NextHop members of the MIB_IPFORWARD_ROW2 structure that the Route parameter points to do not match an an IP route entry on the specified interface.
