Managing NDIS Network Interfaces

Last Updated: 4/22/2017

NDIS network interface providers register network interfaces with NDIS. Before registering an interface, an interface provider obtains a NET_LUID value for that interface. NDIS assigns an interface index ( IfIndex in RFC 2863) to an interface when it is registered.

NDIS also provides services that drivers can use to manage entries in the interface stack table (ifStackTable in RFC 2863).

This section includes:


Using a NET_LUID Index

Registering a Network Interface

Deregistering a Network Interface

Mapping a NET_LUID Value to an Interface Index

NET_LUID Values for Miniport Adapters and Filter Modules
