    734734= III. Run a Layer 2 Experiment =
    735735
    736 The mesoscale GENI resources are connected on Layer 2, which enables Layer 2, i.e. non-IP experiments. In this exercise we are going to run a layer 2 ping program, where we are going to send raw Ethernet frames of a custom Ethernet type to a server and receive a reply. Currently MyPLC only supports IP experiments, so we will use our ProtoGENI host which we have reserved in the beginning.
    737    * check that your sliver is ready

    787787   We have pre-configured the network to forward along Layer2 packets of Ethernet type listed in your account sheet, so let's try pinging with that.
    788788   The software that is going to send Layer 2 pings, is called pingPlus.
