FwpmProviderContextEnum2 function

The FwpmProviderContextEnum2 function returns the next page of results from the provider context enumerator.

Note  FwpmProviderContextEnum2 is the specific implementation of FwpmProviderContextEnum used in Windows 8. See WFP Version-Independent Names and Targeting Specific Versions of Windows for more information. For Windows 7, FwpmProviderContextEnum1 is available. For Windows Vista, FwpmProviderContextEnum0 is available.

Syntax


DWORD WINAPI FwpmProviderContextEnum2(
  _In_   HANDLE engineHandle,
  _In_   HANDLE enumHandle,
  _In_   UINT32 numEntriesRequested,
  _Out_  FWPM_PROVIDER_CONTEXT2 ***entries,
  _Out_  UINT32 *numEntriesReturned
);

Parameters

engineHandle [in]

Type: HANDLE

Handle for an open session to the filter engine. Call FwpmEngineOpen0 to open a session to the filter engine.

enumHandle [in]

Type: HANDLE

Handle for a provider context enumeration created by a call to FwpmProviderContextCreateEnumHandle0.

numEntriesRequested [in]

Type: UINT32

Number of provider context objects requested.

entries [out]

Type: FWPM_PROVIDER_CONTEXT2***

The returned provider context objects.

numEntriesReturned [out]

Type: UINT32*

The number of provider context objects returned.

Return value

Type: DWORD

Return code/valueDescription
ERROR_SUCCESS
0

The provider contexts were enumerated successfully.

FWP_E_* error code
0x80320001—0x80320039

A Windows Filtering Platform (WFP) specific error. See WFP Error Codes for details.

RPC_* error code
0x80010001—0x80010122

Failure to communicate with the remote or local firewall engine.

 

Remarks

If the numEntriesReturned is less than the numEntriesRequested, the enumeration is exhausted.

The returned array of entries (but not the individual entries themselves) must be freed by a call to FwpmFreeMemory0.

A subsequent call using the same enumeration handle will return the next set of items following those in the last output buffer.

FwpmProviderContextEnum2 works on a snapshot of the provider contexts taken at the time the enumeration handle was created.
