With this new network awareness technology, Windows Vista can provide help to the user in fixing network issues or simply provide a graphical view of the perceived network configuration. The Windows Vista network stack includes Windows Filtering Platform ,  which allows external applications to access and hook into the packet processing pipeline of the networking subsystem.
Because WFP has an inbuilt filtering engine, applications need not write any custom engine, they just need to provide the custom logic for the engine to use. The packets are then processed using the Generic Filtering Engine , which also includes a Callout Module , where applications providing the custom processing logic can be hooked up. WFP can be put to uses such as inspecting packets for malware, selective packet restriction, such as in firewalls, or providing custom encryption systems, among others.
Upon its initial release WFP was plagued with bugs including memory leaks and race conditions. Windows Vista includes significant peer-to-peer support with the introduction of new APIs and protocols. Contacts can be created and administered with the new peer-to-peer subsystem—serverless presence allows users to manage real-time presence information and track the presence of other registered users across a subnet or the Internet.
A new People Near Me service allows for the discovery and management of contacts on the same subnet and uses Windows Contacts to manage and store contact information; the new capabilities allows peers to send application invitations to other peers ad-hoc collaboration is also supported without a centralized server. Windows Meeting Space is an example of such an application. PNRP also allows creating an overlay network called a Graph.

Each peer in the overlay network corresponds to a node in the graph. All the nodes in a graph share book-keeping information responsible for the functioning of the network as a whole. For example, in a distributed resource management network, which node has what resource needs to be shared. Such information is shared as Records , which are flooded to all the peers in a graph.
Each peer stores the Record to a local database. A Record consists of a header and a body. The body contains data specific to the application that is using the API; the header contains metadata to describe the data in the body as name-value pairs serialized using XML , in addition to author and version information. It can also contain an index of the body data, for fast searching.
A node can connect to other nodes directly as well, for communication that need not be shared with the entire Graph. The API also allows creation of a secure overlay network called a Group , consisting of all or a subset of nodes in a Graph. A Group can be shared by multiple applications, unlike a Graph. All Records exchanged are digitally signed. Peers must be invited into a Group. The invitation contains the GMC that enables it to join the group. If the computer is connected to the Internet, users can specify a secured or unsecured host name for their computer from a console command, without requiring to register a domain name and configuring a dynamic DNS.
Another planned feature in Windows Vista would have provided a new domain-like networking setup known as a Castle, but this did not make it into the release. Castle would have made it possible to have an identification service, which provides user authentication, for all members on the network, without a centralized server. It would have allowed user credentials to propagate across the peer-to-peer network, making them more suitable for a home network. People Near Me formerly People Nearby is a peer-to-peer service designed to simplify communication and collaboration among users connected to the same subnet.
This facilitates peer caching , allows users to download and serve content such as WSUS updates from peers on the same subnet, receive notification when a file is downloaded, access the temporary file while the download is in progress, and control HTTP redirects. This saves bandwidth on the network and reduces performance load on the server.
BITS 3. TDI is supported in Windows Vista for backward compatibility. Windows Vista and later operating systems use SMB 2. SMB 1. Samba 3. Remote Differential Compression RDC is a client-server synchronization protocol allows data to be synchronized with a remote source using compression techniques to minimize the amount of data sent across the network. It synchronizes files by calculating and transferring only the differences between them on-the-fly.
Therefore, RDC is suitable for efficient synchronization of files that have been updated independently, or when network bandwidth is small or in scenarios where the files are large but the differences between them are small. This was lacking in the Windows XP Service Pack 2 built-in Bluetooth stack, which had to be entirely replaced by a third-party stack for additional profile support.

However, you have a problem. You cannot connect to the Internet because no network driver for the default virtual NIC is available.
You can see the NIC disconnected in Figure 3, below. What do you do to get the needed patches to your Vista OS? Use a virtual floppy? You could also obtain a copy of Windows Vista with SP1 already slipstreamed in the install and reinstall. But you just finished installing your OS, you should not have to install it again.

The answer is to add the legacy network adaptor for your Virtual Guest OS. This will allow you to connect to the network to get what you need. Figure 4: Adding the legacy virtual network adaptor. Figure 5: Cannot add the legacy virtual network adaptor. Once added, you will connect it to a physical network adaptor on the host system. Figure 6: Adding the Legacy Virtual network adaptor. Figure 7: Connecting the virtual network adaptor to a real physical adaptor on the host.
Once the virtual guest is booted, you will see the legacy network adaptor was added as you see in Figure 9. At this point, if you try the integration services application again, it will again tell you that you still need a newer version of windows.

However, now that you have the legacy network adaptor, you can access the Internet to download updates. You will need at least Windows Vista SP1. You have a couple of options to get this. You can search the Internet for the download and manually download the installation. Or, you can use Windows Update to download and install it.
