Ethernet over IP - How does it work ???

Hi All,

How does etherip work?

Lets say now that Host 1 sends a packet to Host 2 over the etherip tunnel (btw, they are on seperate LANs), how is the packet built and what does it look like?

Lets say a normal IP packet like the below :-

Frame 9 (614 on wire, 614 captured)

Arrival Time: Apr 10, 2003 20:44:41.831144000

Time delta from previous packet: 0.003858000 seconds

Time relative to first packet: 3.298858000 seconds

Frame Number: 9

Packet Length: 614 bytes

Capture Length: 614 bytes

Ethernet II

Data: Arsenal are the best team in the World

Now, if it was encap'd in etherip, would it take the entire packet, and put another IP header on it AND new ethernet header?

Does anyone have an etherip packet decode I can look at or a good dosument to show exactly what happens?

Many thx indeed,

Ken

Slightly off topic.

Arsenal are not the best team in the World - that would be Man U :)
