On monday this week we set up the pronto so that I can examine its foibles in practice.

It turns out there are a few of them. Multiple tables is a wash, it simply doesnt seem to work.

I am currently testing what I can do with vlans. The documentation says vlan stripping doesnt work, however, as far as I can tell my packets are leaving the switch with no vlan tags. I figure this is something I am doing wrong with my test because it really makes no sense to me at all otherwise, but I cant track the problem down.

I also thought a bit about what to do when you discover packet loss. I can definitely identify whether packet loss is caused by congestion or more mysterious means provided the level of congestion is not too much more significant than the amount of mysterious packet loss.
