Hello Wouter!!
I am not sure if this helps, since the doccd, is not the same, as like in old days πŸ™‚
but here it goes..

IOS ->12.3 Family –>12.3 Mainline —> Command reference —-> Bridging and IBM network Vol 1 of 2 —-> Appedex.

Cisco IOS Bridging and IBM Networking Command Reference, Volume 1 of 2: Bridging, Release 12.3
Appendix: Ethernet Type Code

hi all,

I searched the archives for a link to the doccd that will show me the
different ethertypes for protocols like: pvst(+), mst, ipx and ipv6. I know
ip and ip arp without any references.
Is there a way to issue a debug command to find out the ethertype values of
a particular protocol? I want to avoid learning hex numbers and forget about
them eventually. πŸ™‚

  1. Yes, but the thing is that you can’t find the 12.3 config guides and command references manually through Cisco’s website. The only guides for 12.3 are special and early deployments and that’s of no use.
