Does Packet Capture show VLANs
I've been trying something with VLANs and want to see if tagged frames are appearing on the LAN. Packet Capture doesn't seem to show them, but Wireshark does. Is this a bug in Packet Capture or a "feature".

Maybe something to do with promiscuous mode.
In Wireshark one can switch on/off promiscuous mode,
Edit > Preferences > Capture
Promiscuous mode is for MAC addresses, not VLAN ID. For example, I commonly run Wireshark to monitor traffic. It has to be in promiscuous mode to capture packtets that are not from or for the computer I'm running Wireshark on. That capture will show the VLAN frames. The question is does Packet Capture look at all the LAN traffic? Or just the non-VLAN?
capture on parent interfaces show vlan frames if level of detail is set high enough
That did it. Tnx.
