IS there an easy way to decipher a PVST+ packet from a Rapid-PVST+ in a packet capture?  Would Rapid just include Spanning-Tree(for-bridges)

IIRC, the version ID for 802.1w (rapid spanning tree) will be a 2 (0x02) while 802.1d is a 0 or a 1.

Boom - got it.  Spanning tree version ID: Spanning tree (0).  No rapid.

Cheers!
