CCIE RS – Routing Concepts – Implement and Troubleshoot Passive Interface

Implement and Troubleshoot Passive Interface

Passive interfaces controls the advertisement of routing information

Enables suppression of routing updates over some interfaces

Restricts outgoing advertisements with the exception of EIGRP

  • EIGRP suppresses the exchange of Hellos
  • Does not allow a neighbor to form

Enabled under the routing process

passive-interface

RIP: Prevent the interface from sending RIP advertisements

router rip
passive-interface [default]
no passive-interface [interface]

EIGRP: Supresses hello messages, preventing a neighbor relationship to form. Stops routing advertisements and incoming routing updates

router eigrp [as]
passive-interface [default]
no passive-interface [interface]

router eigrp [NAME]
address-family [ipv4/ipv6] unicast autonomous-system [as]
af-interface [interface]
[no] passive-interface

OSPF: Setting an interface as passive disables the sending of routing updates on that interface, adjacencies will not be formed. The subnet will continue to be advertised to other interfaces.

router ospf [instance]
 passive-interface [default]
 no passive-interface [interface]

ISIS: Suppresses the sending of routing updates through the specified interface.

passive-interface [interface]
advertise-passive-only
