Chapter 4: Installing, Configuring, and Maintaining Software
Viewing and Managing Local Service Providers
In Software Explorer, you view programs that are acting as local service providers for
Winsock by selecting the Winsock Service Providers option in the Category list. In
the Name list, Software Explorer lists Winsock providers by name according to the
software publisher. The program name is followed by or includes the protocol the
provider uses, such as TCP/IP.
When you select a local service provider, you can view that program’s configuration
details in the right pane (see Figure 4-14). The details provided for Winsock service
providers include similar details to running programs. Additional details you’ll see
include:
LSP Type
Lists the type of provider, such as Transport Provider
GUID
Lists the Globally Unique Identifier (GUID) of the provider
Special Path
Lists the device path the program is using for Winsock communications, if
applicable
