Nyuk,

We have a customer with a VLAN 802.1Q network and Snort runs just fine. Make
sure that the Snort management system you use is capable of understanding
the 802.1Q packet structure when it parses the packets from the snort logs.

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??

Thanks


Kiw
