Last paragraph

In the text the MAC address for spanning tree is given as 01:80:2c:00:00:00, but in the captured frame it is shown as 01:80:c2:00:00:00. I think the one in the description has the 'c' and '2' reversed, which I assume is a typo.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The comment was correct - fixed.

first example SAT table

In the first SAT table MAC address 00...97 is listed an is VLAN 11 with no Port. I believe the digits of 11 should be spaced out so that it is VLAN 1 and Port 1 (as in the 2nd SAT table).

Note from the Author or Editor:
Yes, this is a typo and it should be VLAN 1 port 1.
