Disabling VLAN stripping on 82599 card when using SR-IOV

I have 2 VMs and each has a VF assigned from the same card.

The VMs have installed some apps that communicate with tagged(8021Q) traffic between them. Eg: Client App - VM - PCI - VM - Server App

The issue is that although tagged traffic exists one VM, it will arrive at the other stripped of the tag.

Is there a way to disable this behaviour? Even by recompiling the driver?

Thanks,

Silviu

Is there a way to do this?
