    Hi,
    Need some help here ...
    NDISUIO driver is install in relation to a network connection (you
    click on the properties of a network connection and install it is a
    protocol), however, it can also send OIDs and get statuses from
    connections it was not installed on. Why is that so ? Since I can
    install it on one network connection and send OIDs with it to another
    can I install it globally.

    When installing it using SNETCFG how can I specify which network
    connection to install it on ? How SNETCFG installation is different
    from the GUI installation which I must specify a network connection to
    ?

    Thanks,

  2. When you install an NDIS protocol driver, it by default binds to the
    miniports of *all* network cards. No matter if you install via the
    network configuration GUI or if you use the DDK's snetcfg sample tool.

    The only way to prevent a binding between a protocol and one or more
    miniports is via a Notify Object, which must be installed by the
    protocol's INF.

    See the description on the INetCfg interface in the DDK docs for
    details.
