Pending at the resource assignment layers RRS feed

  • Question

  • When pending at the ALE resource assignment layers should I also return FWP_ACTION_BLOCK as the actionType and leave the flags untouched? The inspect sample doesn't pend at this layer so just want to make sure this is safe.

  • Yes, the best practice is to return block in the callout you pend.  When you reclassify the reauth, you'd then return your final decision.  There is no packet at RESOURCE_ASSIGMENT, so you don't need to set the ABSORB flag.

    Hope this helps,
