IFWXFilter::AttachToSession Method

Creates a session filter object when the Firewall service detects an event for which the filter is registered. AttachToSession also indicates the set of events that the session filter will handle. This set of events includes the events requested in FilterInit. The events for which the filter is registered are received in a FWXFilterHookEvents structure.

The Firewall service object calls this interface when it detects an event for which the filter is registered.
