[VLAN] newbie question ...

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


The card need not support 802.1Q. The linux vlan package acts as a protocol
driver over ethernet (0x8100 is the protocol number). The driver will
decapsulate VLAN tagging and push the packets up throug the virtual
interfaces created using VCONFIG.

Subject: [VLAN] newbie question ...

i?m new to vlans on linux. I?d like to ask whether it is necessary to 
have NIC with
native support of dot1q encapsulation to make vlans work on linux or is 
enough to compile
kernel with dot1q support and install vconfig.
I have all necessities installed. Vconfig seems to work fine but i?m not 
able to
make vlans work.

thanks for any help
