  • LSP's were introduced with WinSock 2.0.  All of the OS's you listed contain support for LSPs.  It is ideal though to try and utilize the Windows Filtering Platform (assumming it can meet your needs) rather than createing a Winsock LSP.

    Hope this helps.

  • Thanks! I need change traffic on the fly, and on WFP for this need write driver, so i need using just LSP. Where in official documentation i can confirm LSP OS compatbility? Do i can with LSP change namespace traffic? What difference between LSP and WFP?
