I'm writing a module for a download manager which monitors HTTP traffic and notifies main module when HTTP stream meets certain conditions.
Going through MSDN, I realize I have to use WFP. So I create a project and write a module that installs my provider and add a callout. Everything is working great until I find out that I have to use
FwpsCalloutRegister0 which is defined in
Fwpsk.h gives a header not found error because it's a header available in WDK which means
FwpsCalloutRegister0 is a kernel-mode function. So I can't use it in a user-mode application, right?
I know that writing a driver is difficult for the first time. Is there any other approaches that can solve my problem or do I have to write a driver?
LSP isn't what I'm looking for because it's deprecated.
There are other download managers that offer a solution for this problem. For example
Internet Download Manager and
Free Download Manager. I don't know what their approaches are.
