Debug dot1x events - pae-ether-type

Can somebody explain me why and when (which event triggers this) I see in the debug dot1x events the following message :


Jul 19 11:12:56.754: dot1x-ev:Received pkt saddr =0000.0000.0000 , daddr = 0180.c200.0003,

pae-ether-type = 888e.0202.0000


Question 1 : Why a source address of 0000.0000.0000 ??


Question 2: what is the pae-ether-type = 888e.0202.0000 and what does the address bits means (I have seen several different addresses e.g. 888e.0202.0000, 888e.0101.0000)



Thanks

0000.0000.0000 effectively means "unknown" to the switch. This will "look" better in the future ;-).


The key part for the rest is 0x888e for the PAE Ethernet Type. I'd guess this is inaccurate or just being printed in the wrong format WRT this debug.
