Release Information

Statement introduced before Junos OS Release 7.4.

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 9.0 for EX Series switches.

Support for OSPFv3 for interface type p2p only introduced in Junos OS Release 9.4. You cannot configure other interface types for OSPFv3.

Support for OSPFv3 for interface type p2mp is introduced in Junos OS Release 18.1R1.

Support for OSPFv3 for interface type p2p only introduced in Junos OS Release 9.4 for EX Series switches.

Description

Specify the type of interface.

By default, the software chooses the correct interface type based on the type of physical interface. Therefore, you should never have to set the interface type. The exception to this is for NBMA interfaces, which default to an interface type of point-to-multipoint. To have these interfaces explicitly run in Nonbroadcast multiaccess (NBMA) mode, configure the nbma interface type, using the IP address of the local ATM interface.

In Junos OS Release 9.3 and later, a point-to-point interface can be an Ethernet interface without a subnet.

Default

The software chooses the correct interface type based on the type of physical interface.

Options

nbma (OSPFv2 only)Nonbroadcast multiaccess (NBMA) interface
p2mpPoint-to-multipoint interface
p2mp-over-lanPoint-to-multipoint over LAN mode
p2pPoint-to-point interface
