I am confused on something. 802.1p is contained within an 802.1q tag at layer 2, I understand all this stuff. However MS workstations and the such can now mark 802.1p priorities, yet they are not connected to 802.1q trunks. I know some Cisco switches you can configure for .1p classification on the native or "untagged" vlan. What I dont understand is how .1p marking can be done on these end devices and not have their frame thrown away if other devices are unaware he is marking layer 2 CoS wth 802.1P ?
Is it safe to say, than workstations can tag with 802.1p even though they are not talking to a dot1q trunk on the switch, and as long as the switches in the path have QoS enabled they will pass the traffice and adhere as configured ??
Please help me clarify. Doc's I read try to seperate .1p and .1q while others state that .1p relies on the dot1q tag to inserts it's bits, which I believe. If that is true how can dot1p exist without dot1q simply put ?
