As a set, the OID_GEN_PROTOCOL_OPTIONS OID specifies a bitmask that defines optional properties of the protocol driver.
- Windows Vista and later versions of Windows
- Windows XP
A protocol informs NDIS of its properties, which can optionally take advantage of them. If the protocol driver does not set its flags on a binding, NDIS assumes they are all clear.
The following flags are currently defined:
Specifies that packets can be indicated at the worst-case estimate of packet size, instead of an exact value, to this protocol.
Specifies that the protocol does not require loopback support on the binding.
