If you think it's wrong, please clarify > what should the "DHCP offer" packet look like. I haven't read the standard in a long time and didn't pay much attention to only-p packets when I did. If replies should indeed be tagless (I assume because the switch does not set priority for the reply) then how do you suggest that Linux should handle the incoming packet? > There was a similar discussion in this forum two years ago: > > http://www.candelatech.com/pipermail/vlan/2005-February/000241.html > > As Ben Greear said in the above page: "I don't think VLAN-0 is going to > work, and at the very least, you cannot use .1p w/out using .1q as the > headers are one and the same." > > Is the above conclusion still true?

I think what Ben meant in that post is that it can't work withoug using the .1q code in Linux. That said, if you are convinced that it is correct, maybe you could produce a patch that will send all incoming packets on eth0 also to eth0.0. //Peter _______________________________________________ Vlan mailing list Vlan@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx http://www.candelatech.com/mailman/listinfo/vlan
