802.1ad Q-in-Q over Softether L2 bridge

Post by astrablaster » Tue Jul 02, 2019 2:59 pm

Hi,

Is Softether L2 connection, e.g. LAN to LAN cascade connection able to transport 802.1ad alias Q-in-Q (ethernet type 0x88A8) packets? I'm trying to transport 802.1q (VLAN) packets encapsulated in 802.1ad. My tests failed so far (while it is working on plain ethernet). I'm using Debian 9 on Softether gateways as well as on the end clients.

Thank you
