Winsock LSP Communication

How does Winsock LSP communication travel through the various interfaces?  How is this communication routed within the application?  Here is a brief explanation:

Layered Service Provider is the long way of just saying LSP.  A Winsock LSP can be used for several different reasons.  The technology is far from simple, but it may seem that way to a casual observer.

When communication is sent through a Winsock API, it passes through several gates and/or interfaces before it can reach the kernel.  The gates/layers are where code is inserted for the ability to monitor, reroute and/or change the original communication.
