REMOTE_NDIS_INITIALIZE_MSG is sent by the host to a Remote NDIS device to initialize the network connection. It is sent through the control channel and only when the device is in a state not yet initialized by Remote NDIS. The message indicates the following:

  • Maximum size, in bytes, of any single bus data transfer that the host expects to receive from the device. Typically, each bus data transfer accommodates a single Remote NDIS message. However, as described in Remote NDIS Data Message, the device may bundle several Remote NDIS messages containing data packets into a single transfer.

  • Major and minor Remote NDIS protocol version implemented by the host. This value is the highest Remote NDIS protocol version supported by the host.
