[VLAN] 802.1Q ARP frame size?
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
The reason I asked the question was because a switch vendor told me that my Linux PC should transmit 68-octet 802.1Q ARP frame, instead of 64 octets. Their switch reduces 64-octet tagged ARP frames to 60-octet when transmitting out to an untagged port. As a result, the receiving host dropped the 60-octet ARP frames and communication failed. I consulted the 802.1Q-1998 standard and it says both 64-octet and 68-octet 802.1Q frames are acceptable. This looks like a bug of the switch, right? Thanks, John
