    X710 Flow director issues on Linux


      Hello all,


      I am not able to setup Flow Director to filter flow type ipv4. It did not seems to have this issue when flow type is specified as tcp.

      Its on Linux(4.9.27), freshly download driver off kernel. Below there is output of the driver version, firmware and the ntuple filter  I want to apply on.

      No error shown anywhere.


      Thank you!
