The protocol match function allows the application to define filters based on the protocol information found by the frame decoder (see Frame Decoding).


Functionality of the protocol match function:

  • Arbitrary values for the outer and inner Protocol (IPv4) and Next Header (IPv6) fields (in addition to the Layer 4 protocols UDP, TCP, ICMP and SCTP).
  • MAC destination address type: control frame, broadcast, multicast or unicast frame.
