Removing tags from traffic

Hi,

Our Network Operations Center made some changes to the infrastructure, and
now all traffic seen by our Bro systems is tagged. As a result, Bro is
not capturing traffic (or so it seems). Is it possible to configure Bro
to remove or ignore the tags? Are there any (other) suggestions?

We are also checking with our NOC to see if they can un-tag the traffic.

Thanks!

# Make any changes to policy starting here

@load vlan

try adding that to <machine.site.com>.bro in /usr/local/bro/site

You are referring to vlan tagging? If so, try adding vlan.bro policy to your config and you should get better results. Note this will prevent you from seeing any non-vlan traffic.
