VLAN tags are stripped before being sent to the host access port.  Or are
you monitoring a trunk port?  Even still, the VLAN aware NIC you must have
installed in your Snort machine removes the tags before passing them up ...

I think.

Hi all,

Sorry for a newbie Q.

Just finish reading a snort book and have got a play box up and running
at home. Would like to know how does snort handle packets' that are VLAN
tag? Will snort still be able to decode them properly??
