Topic: Microsoft TCP stack implementation

Lecturer: Arkady Frenkel, Windows SDK MVP


In this presentation, Arkady will define how the OSI (Open Systems Interconnection) model is implemented in the desktop Windows operating systems (which exclude the Windows CE TCP stack).

Arkady will describe all the levels of the TCP stack; from the Layered Service Provider to the miniport layer of Network Driver Interface Specification (NDIS). He will cover the communication interfaces between layers.

He will show and analyze the Networking API (pipes, mailslots, winsock, RPC, Netbios, CIFS) as clients of the TCP stack on the application layer.

Name Resolution and binding will be reviewed too, as they are important aspects of networking.

Arkady will provide examples of what can be done using the Platform SDK and DDK.

If time allows, WMI and IPHLPAPI will be discussed as additional help subsystem for Windows networking (with code examples).


For nearly 25 years Arkady has been developing Wired and Wireless Real-Time Industrial Control Systems (SCADA). The environments include the RTE (Real-Time Executor) OS on HP 21xx and RT11, RSX on PDP-11. Fourteen of those years include experience with all versions of Windows (including all version of Windows CE from first the version till CE.NET).

His areas of interest have always ranged from low level kernel and drivers to GUI based user applications, using MFC, COM, and ATL.

He is familiar with the TCP stack from Winsock through LSP and the NDIS protocol and IM.

Last year he was offered a development position writing NDIS Wireless miniport drivers. He now works for Rokonet, a leading provider of comprehensive security solutions worldwide, developing UPnP solutions for its controllers in .NET (C#).


Arkady was awarded the Windows SDK MVP in 2001.
