Can NetAdapterCx be used to develop CoNDIS minport equivalent drivers? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Basically as the title reads, I was reading about the WDF NetAdapter class extension. There doesn't seem to be a ton of information on it and the existing samples and information seem to focus around developing the equivalent to an connectionless NDIS minport driver, for example, for Ethernet. Can this also be used to develop CoNDIS [WAN] miniports, or is that not supported?

  • No - NetAdapter currently only supports connectionless network interfaces.  That's simply due to the need to prioritize our limited resources: we are targeting the most popular parts of NDIS first.  If there's enough demand, there's no technical reason we couldn't add connection oriented features to NetAdapter, but so far you're the first person I've heard even ask this question.
