Spanning Tree Protocol (STP)

XXX - add a brief STP description here

History

XXX - add a brief description of STP history

Protocol dependencies

  • ["LLC"]: Typically, STP uses [wiki:LLC 802.2 LLC] as its transport protocol, running on link-layer protocols in the LanProtocolFamily such as ["Ethernet"].

Example traffic

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

Wireshark

The STP dissector is (fully functional, partially functional, not existing, ... whatever the current state is). Also add info of additional Wireshark 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 Wireshark can open gzipped files automatically.

Display Filter

A complete list of STP display filter fields can be found in the [http://www.wireshark.org/docs/dfref/s/stp.html display filter reference]

  • Show only the STP based traffic:

     stp 

Capture Filter

  • Capture only the STP based traffic:
