FPCApplicationFilter Object

The FPCApplicationFilter object represents a single application filter. Application filters work with the Microsoft Firewall service to intercept and process data. Application filters can access the data stream or datagrams associated with a session within the Firewall service. The filters are registered with the Firewall service and act in response to events detected by the service. An application filter can perform protocol-specific or system-specific tasks, such as authentication and checking for viruses.

The application filters that are associated with a protocol are specified by including references to the applicable FPCApplicationFilter objects in the FPCRefs collection held in the ApplicationFilters property of the FPCProtocolDefinition object.

The application filters that are installed on a Forefront TMG computer are registered with the Firewall service by including references to the applicable FPCApplicationFilter objects in the FPCRefs collection held in the InstalledApplicationFilters property of the FPCServer object.

The FPCApplicationFilter object is an element of an FPCApplicationFilters collection, and a new object representing an application filter can be created by calling the Add method of this collection.

Methods Inherited from FPCPersist

NameDescription
CancelWaitForChangesCancels the registration established by the WaitForChanges method (for use in C and C++ programming only).
CanImportReturns a Boolean value that indicates whether the object's properties can be imported from the specified XML document.
ExportWrites the stored values of all of the object's properties to the specified XML document.
ExportToFileWrites the stored values of all of the object's properties to the specified XML file.
GetServiceRestartMaskRetrieves a 32-bit bitmask of the FpcServices enumerated type that specifies which services need to be restarted for currently unsaved changes to take effect.
ImportCopies the values of all of the object's properties from the specified XML document to persistent storage.
ImportFromFileCopies the values of all of the object's properties from the specified XML file to persistent storage.
LoadDocPropertiesProvides the XML document's properties so that you can know what information can be imported from the document.
RefreshReads the values of all of the object's properties from persistent storage, overwriting any changes that have not been saved.
SaveWrites the current values of all of the object's properties to persistent storage.
WaitForChangesRegisters to wait for an event indicating that the contents of the object have changed (for use in C and C++ programming only).

Properties Inherited from FPCPersist

NameDescription
PersistentNameGets the persistent name of the object. The persistent name of an object is a name that is unique for the object at the respective level of the COM object hierarchy.
