Logical Link Control (LLC, IEEE 802.2)
XXX - add a brief LLC description here
XXX - add a brief description of LLC history
LLC can use a number of LAN (and MAN/WAN?) protocols as its transport protocol:
- ["Ethernet"]: LLC can be used for packets on ["Ethernet"] networks, although many protocols don't use it when running atop Ethernet.
- ["IEEE 802.11"]: LLC is used for data packets on ["IEEE 802.11"] networks.
- ["FDDI"]: LLC is used for data packets on ["FDDI"] networks.
XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Ethereal screenshot).
The LLC dissector is (XXX - fully functional, partially functional, not existing, ... whatever the current state is).
(XXX add links to preference settings affecting how LLC is dissected).
Example capture file
XXX - Add a simple example capture file to the SampleCaptures page and link from here. Keep it short, it's also a good idea to gzip it to make it even smaller, as Ethereal can open gzipped files automatically.
A complete list of LLC display filter fields can be found in the [http://www.ethereal.com/docs/dfref/l/llc.html display filter reference]
Show only the LLC based traffic:
