LSP Problem, Winsock Problem

An LSP problem is a Winsock (Windows Sockets) problem.  There is no way to have an LSP problem without a Winsock problem – they are pretty much attached at the hip.  LSP problem, Winsock problem.

So when you run into layer service provider development issues, you generally want to goto the Internet to help you find a solution.  This is how many, many people find Komodia.com each and every day.

The Vista Layered Service Provider Problem

Vista can be a bit of an LSP nightmare because of the potential snafu regarding the 32 bit and 64 bit versions.  It is such a headache that I have officially decided to give it a title:  The Vista Layered Service Provider Problem.

The catch is that some people are only installing the 32 bit DLLs and the 32 bit LSP on a 64 bit OS and then other people are only installing the 64 bit DLLs and the 64 bit LSP.  The fact of the matter is that in order to run a 32 bit application n a 64 bit OS, you need the 32 bit DLLs and LSP.  However, you ALSO need the 64 bit DLLs and LSP for the 64 bit applications.  One important note, you must install the 32 bit versions first.

This should effectively solve a majority of the problems and fix LSP issues for Vista.  However, if you are having other problems like Vista LSP can’t connect to Internet or communication problems, then you may need more detailed help.  I would definitely check out the free LSP guide and resource page here at Komodia.com before going any further.


Redirecting Winsock Sockets

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.

Winsock IFS Driver

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.
