Tech Stuff - 802.3 Type/Length Fields

The Type/Length field is assigned and controlled by the IEEE which we are delighted to say is now publicly available. IANA maintains a public list of values that have been culled from various sources BUT IS NOT DEFINITIVE and in fact shows a number of conflicts.

The list below was derived from personal inspection and research and is INCOMPLETE and in the interests of consistency will not be maintained. Use the DEFINITIVE IEEE source referenced above.

Value (Hex) Status Assigned to/Used by
0600 ? Xerox XNS
0800 Active IP (TCP/IP) IETF
0801 ? X.75 over LAN
0805 ? X.25 Level 3 over LAN
0806 Active ARP (IP) Address Resolution Protocol. IETF
08AD ? Banyan
6004 ? DEC LAT
6005 ? DECNet diagnostics
8035 Active RARP (Reverse ARP) IETF
8046 - 8047 ? AT&T
80D5 ? IBM SNA Service over Ethernet
8100 Active IEEE VLAN 802.1Q Tag Protocol Identifier (TPID) followed by a 16 bit TCI value. IEEE.
8137 - 8138 ? Novell IPX/SPX
