I have this code for filtering in firewall, but doesn't show any action on packets!!
Help me please
Following is the code:
class IpPacketFilter
    [DllImport("iphlpapi.dll", EntryPoint = "PfBindInterfaceToIPAddress")]
    public static extern int PfBindInterfaceToIPAddress(IntPtr Interface_handle, PFADDRESSTYPE pfatType, ref int ip_address);
      [DllImport("iphlpapi.dll", EntryPoint = "PfCreateInterface")]
    public static extern int PfCreateInterface(int dwName, PFFORWARD_ACTION inAction, PFFORWARD_ACTION outAction, bool UseLog, bool MustBeUnique, ref IntPtr ppInterface);
    //////    ////
    [DllImport("iphlpapi.dll", EntryPoint = "PfAddFiltersToInterface")]
    public static extern int PfAddFiltersToInterface(
        IntPtr interface_handle,

OK, this is a code dump. Where is the description of your problem?
#realJSOP 26-Aug-11 7:37am    
It "doesn't show any packets!!" - whatever the hell that means.
elham65_tansa 26-Aug-11 7:44am    
"doesn't show any action on packets" means : The firewall should be the IP we will DROP but this does not happen and packets are forwarded
elham65_tansa 6-Aug-11 15:32pm    
For example, a packet filter that comes with the IP, but let that pass.
It also does not have any error. Only when it passed to the default action is drop. Trace it to run it in visual studio.
I need this code please help me.
