Q-in-Q ( ethertype should be defined explicitly and not via its raw value
Closed, ResolvedPublicFEATURE REQUEST


[email protected]# set interfaces ethernet eth1 vif-s 100 ethertype
Possible completions:
   0x88A8       802.1ad
   0x8100       802.1q

This should be changed to a more user friendly CLI node (protocol over ethertype) and (802.1ad) over it's raw value. There is no need in presenting RAW information from the ethernet header to the user. Also iproute2 calls it protocol which makes way more sense over the "raw" value.
