Re: Dix, ethernet

Hi Sara,

Here is some explanation:

The original Ethernet is called Experimental Ethernet today. It was developed by Robert Metcalfe in 1972 (patented in 1978) and was based in part on the wireless ALOHAnet protocol. The first Ethernet that was generally used outside Xerox was DIX Ethernet, followed by Ethernet II. IEEE defines a 802.3 standard where the Type field is replaced by Length, and an 802.2 LLC header follows with the Type field. However, as DIX Ethernet was derived from Experimental Ethernet, and as many standards have been developed that are based on DIX Ethernet, the technical community has accepted the term Ethernet for all of them. Therefore, the term Ethernet can be used to name networks using any of the following standardized media and functions:

Hi, Sarah:

Im not too confident that you will find an authoritative answer regarding such a minute bit of technical trivia. I'm also not too sure of the value of that piece of information to boot, although I do respect your intellectual curiosity in general.

I would guess that DIX Ethernet did indeed support the encapsualation of IP. IP was standardized a bit before DIX was....

But the question  dix ethernet supported the ip or not?
