FPCApplicationFilter Object

The FPCApplicationFilter object represents a single application filter. Application filters work with the Microsoft Firewall service to intercept and process data. Application filters can access the data stream or datagrams associated with a session within the Firewall service. The filters are registered with the Firewall service and act in response to events detected by the service. An application filter can perform protocol-specific or system-specific tasks, such as authentication and checking for viruses.

The application filters that are associated with a protocol are specified by including references to the applicable FPCApplicationFilter objects in the FPCRefs collection held in the ApplicationFilters property of the FPCProtocolDefinition object.

The application filters that are installed on a Forefront TMG computer are registered with the Firewall service by including references to the applicable FPCApplicationFilter objects in the FPCRefs collection held in the InstalledApplicationFilters property of the FPCServer object.

The FPCApplicationFilter object is an element of an FPCApplicationFilters collection, and a new object representing an application filter can be created by calling the Add method of this collection.
