Enable/disable LLDP protocol Windows 10 VMware Worstation 15 Player


I'm monitoring a TCP conversation between two PLC's using Wireshark on a VM with Windows 10.


[ PLC1 ]------[ Manageable switch with port forwarding (DLINK DGS-1100-05) ]------[ PLC2]

On the mirroring port, I'm using:

  • Wireshark 3.4.3, running on
  • Windows 10 Entreprise LTSC 2019, hosted on
  • VMware Workstation 15.5.7 Player

For academic purposes, I'm wondering about the LLDP packets that shows up, and are not part of the TCP conversation.
The LLDP packets are issued by the VMware Ethernet adapter it seems.
I'm wondering at what level it is implemented and if it is possible to thinker with it:

  • Enable/disable it
  • Configure it (transmit only, receive only, both)
  • Display informations...

Any help/information is greatly appreciated.
