Reading Ethernet frames RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Could someone please point me in the right direction as to which .Net classes I can use to read Ethernet frames. In particular I want to read multicast Ethernet frames (LLDP).

    The only documentation I can find relates to the Socket class, but I think this only works with IP. The frames I'm interested are Ethernet frames, but do not hold an IP packet. Ideally I would like to listen for any Ethernet frame destined for a particular multicast MAC address...

    I'd really appreciate a nudge in the right direction.

    Many thanks,
