Ethernet Snooping in the FPGA

Started by pinku June 1, 2006
Hello,
I need to snooping the ethernet data so that corresponding data is send
to corresponding link. I mean one input and two output link (Ethernet).
So only way to implement is to buffer the whole ethernet packet and
look for the VLAN address and send it to the corresponding path?Is
there any other way ? This all need to be implemented in FPGA.

Any help will be great appreciated.
Thanks and regards
Praveen

100 Mbps _hubs_ comes to mind. They will output the same data to all ports..

I think he wants to say VLAN router

Well that's one thing hubs won't do :) 3xPHY + FPGA should be able to fix this. Otoh, maybe a pc can handle it.

Maybe. See: http://www.ethereal.com/ -- Mike Treseler
