Description

Advertise the direct interface addresses on an interface without actually running OSPF on that interface. A passive interface is one for which the address information is advertised as an internal route in OSPF, but on which the protocol does not run.

To configure an interface in OSPF passive traffic engineering mode, include the traffic-engineering statement. Configuring OSPF passive traffic engineering mode enables the dynamic discovery of OSPF AS boundary routers.

Enable OSPF on an interface by including the interface statement at the [edit protocols (ospf | ospf3) area area-id] or the [edit routing-instances routing-instance-name protocols ospf area area-id] hierarchy levels. Disable it by including the disable statement, To prevent OSPF from running on an interface, include the passive statement. These three states are mutually exclusive.
