I just had to share this entertaining presentation with everyone.
It was written by Bernard Lemal. He works for IBM GTS Belgium in AIX support.
It’s a humorous look at the life of an IP packet and its journey in the world of VLANs, VLAN tagging and Virtual I/O.
Plenty of interesting and informative commentary along the way.
The part of the IP packet is portrayed by Bernard himself. Take a look at the presentation to see what I mean!
I wish I’d seen a presentation like this when I was first introduced to the concept of VLAN tagging, it might have answered several questions early on.
