Re: Is there a IBM AIX DDK for driver developer?2011-03-24T15:03:06ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.Go a bit further down the list and you'll find what I think you are looking for?
IBM calls it "Kernel Extensions and Device Support Programming Concepts".
That said, do you just want to play around with device drivers or do you actually want to get a working firewall?
Not 100% sure about AIX5.3, but AIX6.1 for sure have IPFilter as an optional install which gives you all kinds of firewall options.

Thanks for responding.
I've take a look of IPFilter, Just like IPFilter on HP-UX and Solaris, it implement a STREAM driver called pfil.
I need to implement a STREAM driver which has pfil's ability to hook income and outgoing packet.
