Spanning Tree Protocol (STP)

XXX - add a brief STP description here


XXX - add a brief description of STP history

Protocol dependencies

  • ["Ethernet"]: Typically, STP uses ["Ethernet"] as its transport protocol.

Example traffic

XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Ethereal screenshot).


The STP dissector is (fully functional, partially functional, not existing, ... whatever the current state is). Also add info of additional Ethereal features where appropriate, like special statistics of this protocol.

Preference Settings

There are no STP specific preference settings.

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.

Display Filter

A complete list of STP display filter fields can be found in the [ display filter reference]
