Overview

An Ethernet header consists of:

Create a Ethernet header

# standalone
eth = PacketGen::Header::Eth.new
# in a packet
pkt = PacketGen.gen('Eth')
# access to Ethernet header
pkt.eth   # => PacketGen::Header::Eth

Ethernet attributes

eth.dst = "00:01:02:03:04:05"
eth.src        # => "00:01:01:01:01:01"
eth[:src]      # => PacketGen::Header::Eth::MacAddr
eth.ethertype  # => 16-bit Integer
eth.body = "This is a body"
