VLAN is an implementation of the 802.1Q VLAN protocol for Linux.
Version: 1.9VLAN is an implementation of the 802.1Q VLAN protocol for Linux.
Operating System: Linux
VLAN allows one to have Virtual LANs on a single ethernet cable, giving you the ability to segregate LANs efficiently. VLAN should support up to 4094 vlan interfaces per ethernet device.
Here are some key features of "VLAN":
· Implements 802.1Q VLAN spec.
· Implements support for a non-standard (as far as I know) MAC-based VLAN functionality.
· Can support up to 4094 VLANs per ethernet interface.
· Scales well in critical paths: O(n), where n is the number of PHYSICAL ethernet interfaces, and that is only on ingress. O(1) in every other critical path, as far as I know.
· Supports MULTICAST
· Can change MAC address of VLAN.
· Multiple naming conventions supported, and adjustable at runtime.
· Optional header-reordering, to make the VLAN interface look JUST LIKE an Ethernet interface. This fixes some problems with DHCPd and anything else that uses a SOCK_PACKET socket. Default setting is off, which works for every other protocol I know about, and is slightly faster.
What's New in This Release:
· This release fixes return error codes in vconfig.
