IPForward ClassifyFn not called(NAT) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    In our NAT project, I used the IPForward layer to forward private packet to public.

    So I register a callout for FWPM_LAYER_IPFORWARD_V4 layer, nothing entry my forward callout(I use KdPrint to test). but other layer (e.g. FWPM_LAYER_INBOUND_IPPACKET_V4) not appears the same problem

    My codes step:

    1. add sub-layers

    2. register callout

    3. add filters

  • I found the 
    <p>FWPM_CONDITION_ALE_PROMISCUOUS_MODE in ALE resource assignment.</p><p>If the NIC not open the promiscuous mode, could I receive packet in IP Forward layer?</p><p>In my test, I not found any packets, because my ipforward classifyfn not called.</p><p></p><p>Anyone help me.</p><p></p><p>Thanks</p>

  • Can you specify what the filter looks like (i.e. what conditions are you using). What does the traffic look like that you expect to hit your callout ( Src Address, Dst Address, etc)

  • That's true. I have met the same problem, I register a callout in FWPM_LAYER_IPFORWARD_V4 layer, the condition is NULL (as the DDK said, that's means always ture), but my classifyfn was never got called. And I'm sure there is some packets should be forwarded at that time (by wireshark, some packets received which destination IP is different between the current NIC's IP). But after I modify the callout layer to FWPM_LAYER_INBOUND_IPPACKET_V4, my classifyfn was got called with those packets.
