Redirecting Winsock Sockets

Saturday, June 5th, 2010

Talk about a Winsock stress test!  Redirecting Winsock sockets can send anyone to the mental institution!  It can really be a challenge.  There are so many little things that can go wrong – so many minor details.  In LSP how to inject to running process can be tricky as well.  That is why I cannot recommend the free LSP guide enough.  Komodia’s free LSP resource page and video is a must for anyone struggling with LSP issues.

64 Bit Windows Socket APIs

Friday, June 4th, 2010

When you hear the term “64 bit Windows Socket APIs,” what is being referenced is just the 64 bit Winsock.  The longer phrase is merely a throwback to when programmers were still fighting the newer Winsock name.  Many refused to call Winsock anything but Windows Socket API – this actually caused a problem with online documentation for awhile until the majority of programmers realized that the issue really wasn’t worth it.  Here at Komodia, you can call 64 bit Windows Socket APIs anything you want – Komodia knows what you mean.

Does LSP Layer Supports Port Blocking

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

This is one of the questions that I found in a comment posted to this blog:  does LSP layer supports port blocking?  My answer to this type of question is simply to direct you to Komodia’s free Winsock LSP guide and resource page.  It is going to be able to answer all of your Winsock LSP questions.  When you do find a problem that you either cannot answer or you do not want to spend the time to fix, then I want to point you towards Komodia’s Redirector.  With Komodia’s Redirector you can block Internet using Winsock and much more.

Winsock IFS Driver

Monday, May 31st, 2010

What is Winsock IFS driver?

There are two different versions of Winsock LSP: IFS & non IFS. Generally most LSPs are non IFS – including the products of Komodia.com. Non IFS LSPs actually change the socket handle to create a non valid Windows IFS handle. IFS LSPs do not do this, they keep the socket handle, which makes it possible for the LSP to use only the functions it intercepts.

For more information regarding the Winsock IFS driver, please see the free LSP guide.

Winsock Samples & Layered Service Provider Issues

Sunday, May 30th, 2010

It can be great to use the Winsock samples that are provided in the SDK\samples directory.  However, for every plus there is a minus and the minus here is the potential errors that can arise.  If you are having Winsock layered service provider issues, it MAY be related to the use of Winsock samples.  Check out the free Winsock LSP resource page here on Komodia.com.

Winsock Client

Sunday, May 30th, 2010

Winsock client communicates with server applications.  The server application will send its information and the client application will send an information packet back.  Once this link is created, the Winsock client can continue to exchange information with the server application.

Winsock Kernel

Saturday, May 29th, 2010

WSK, or Winsock Kernel, is a kernel moded NPI.  This is similar to Winsock2 in that you can use the same socket programming concepts.  The Winsock Kernel Network Programming Interface (NPI) supports many of the same socket operations; however, it is a very different beast from the user-mode winsock2.
