Overview

Header stripping of received frames can be both conditional and generic. Received frames can be stripped of the tunneling protocols that can be recognized by the frame decoder, such as GRE, GTP, NVGRE, VXLAN and Cisco FabricPath as well as of the tags that can be recognized by the frame decoder, such as VLAN, MPLS and VN-Tag. In addition a portion of a received frame can be stripped based on an offset and a length. For more details, see DN-0449.

Note: Header stripping only applies to NT200A02 running on a capture/replay image and NT100A01 running on a test and measurement image.
