    Hi,
    I wanted to know if it is possible in some way to use the driver in the same order from two different applications.

    One made in c ++ and another in c #.

    I’ve tried using the free winpkfilter and others for payment but they do not work.

    I think I should do something like the first application configures the drives, and the second application can use the handles of the first to access ..

    I do not know if it’s possible …..

    If two different application operate on different network adapters then yes, they can share single filter driver. Otherwise, no because there is only one copy of the packet in the driver.

    So you have two choices, build your filtering engine as a dedicated service process and use from two different applications, or build two different filter drivers, one per application. First approach probably better from the performance point of view.
