LLDP Sample Application

Overview

The Link Layer Discovery Protocol sample application for Zephyr will enable LLDP support and setup VLANs if needed.

The source code for this sample application can be found at: samples/net/lldp.

Building and Running

A good way to run this sample LLDP application is inside QEMU, as described in Networking with QEMU or with embedded device like FRDM-K64F. Note that LLDP is only supported for boards that have an ethernet port.

Follow these steps to build the LLDP sample application:

# On Linux/macOS
cd $ZEPHYR_BASE/samples/net/lldp
mkdir build && cd build
# On Windows
cd %ZEPHYR_BASE%\samples\net\lldp
mkdir build & cd build
cmake -GNinja -DBOARD=<board to use> -DCONF_FILE=prj.conf ..
ninja

Setting up Linux Host

If you need VLAN support in your network, then the samples/net/vlan/vlan-setup-linux.sh provides a script that can be executed on the Linux host. It creates two VLANs on the Linux host and creates routes to Zephyr.
