    Hi @Miguel Angel Sinzano ,

    A Hyper-V Extensible Switch extension is an NDIS filter or Windows Filtering Platform (WFP) filter that runs inside the Hyper-V Extensible Switch (also called the "Hyper-V virtual switch").

    There are 3 classes of extensions: capture, filtering, and forwarding. All of them can be implemented as NDIS filter drivers. Filtering extensions can also be implemented as WFP filter drivers.

    For an architectural overview for driver developers, see Overview of the Hyper-V Extensible Switch.

    you can find all steps to make here at this article:

    You don't need to install the Microsoft Azure vfp switch extension. Open Virtual Switch Manager and navigate to the virtual switch extensions, then select the Microsoft Azure vfp switch extension and apply.
