Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 10.1.

Description

Enable promiscuous mode on Layer 3 Ethernet interfaces. When promiscuous mode is enabled on an interface, all packets received on the interface are sent to the central point or Services Processing Unit regardless of the destination MAC address of the packet.

You can also enable promiscuous mode on chassis cluster redundant Ethernet interfaces and on aggregated Ethernet interfaces. If you enable promiscuous mode on a redundant Ethernet interface, promiscuous mode is then enabled on any child physical interfaces. If you enable promiscuous mode on an aggregated Ethernet interface, promiscuous mode is then enabled on all member interfaces.
