I'm capturing double 802.1q tagged frames. I'd like to have columns which display both the outer and inner vlan tag ID in the user interface. the column field type "802.1q VLAN id" shows the inner vlan id. the custom column with also shows inner tag. how do i have a column show the outer tag vlan id?

thanks in advance,

In version 1.5.0 there is the new feature to select a specific occurrence of a field in a custom column. Which version are you using?

That's great. Thank you SYNbit. I'm using 1.2.6. I'll wait until 1.5.0 is declared stable and give it a try.

1.5.0 will not be declared stable. It's a development realease, meaning it is an official release, but it contains (many) new features, which means it could be a little less stable than the "stable" branches like 1.2.x and 1.4.x.

The first "stable" release with this functionality will be 1.6.0
