Regarding VLAN tags

Greg asked:



Is there a command or other method to determine what VLAN tags are visible to the back of a flex-10 module?



Carl and Paul replied:



No, you'd have to look at the config of the upstream switch port., or plug that downlink into a network analyzer..

Assuming that you are doing this without the help of a LAN admin...

If you configured the VC in tunnel mode, you could load LANShark on a blade and listen in on all the traffic. Without the VC domain in tunnel mode you would have to use the method Paul mentioned.


It would be easier to just connect the cable to a laptop or other device running an analyzer.
