Is writing a filesystem driver neccesery for this problem?


I have a couple of questions about filesystem drivers:

I need to develop an driver that integrates an existing application to
Windows NT filesystem. That application provides all the directories,
files and other needed data and they should be fully usable (read,
write, remove, read and write protections and so on) from all

And that application also needs to get data through TCP/IP connection
preferably with Win32 internet functions.

That filesystem should reside for example on a drive letter of it’s own.

First of all I am assuming that I need to write a filesystem driver
and there is no easier way. Am I correct?

And the how easy it is to make TCP/IP connections in filesystem driver code?

Has anybody done anything similar?
