Dear all,

I wouls like to do some captures off double tag trafic. Does anybody knows if wireshark will capture and decode the traffic. If it is, a special config is needed?

Thanks a lot,

Capture depends on your network hardware/driver.

Dissection is not a problem.

Yes, I've done this many times. If you want to use a capture filter or display filter we are doubling up on the vlan filter to nail down a specific Q-in-Q VLAN. I'm not sure if there is another (easier?) way, but this works well:

capture filter for Q-in-Q VLAN 506.100:

vlan 506 and vlan 100

display filter for Q-in-Q VLAN 506.100: == 506 && == 100
