Hi, I'm currently implementing this Internet draft which allows for sending 6LoWPAN frames over an Ethernet connection (which can be kind of useful for debugging your embedded software using a local TAP ;-)). Since there is no Ethertype for this yet, I used a random one that isn't assigned yet (
Thanks for your reply!

From the IEEE registry, an Ethertype for prototype use:
as 0x87dd is already assigned, just not for a published protocol.
Anyway, as for using Decode as for 6LoWPAN, its dissector needs to be registered for this purpose with the Ethernet dissector. Obviously currently it's not.
