    Example: Configuring Shared IP Interfaces

    This example shows you how to create and configure shared IP interfaces.


    This example uses the following software and hardware components:

    • JunosE Release 7.1.0 or higher-numbered releases
    • E Series router (ERX7xx models, ERX14xx models, the ERX310 router, the E120 router, or the E320 router)
    • ASIC-based line modules that support Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet


    You can create multiple shared IP interfaces over the same layer 2 logical interface—for example, atm 5/3.101—enabling more than one IP interface to share the same logical resources.

    Configuring Shared IP Interfaces

    To configure shared IP interfaces:

    1. Create a layer 2 interface.
      host1(config)#interface atm 5/3 host1(config-if)#interface atm 5/3.101
    2. (Optional) Create a primary IP interface.
      host1(config-if)#ip address host1(config-if)#exit
    3. Create the shared IP interface.
      host1(config)#interface ip si0
    4. Associate the shared IP interface with the layer 2 interface by one of the following methods:
      • Statically
        host1(config-if)#ip share-interface atm 5/3.101
      • Dynamically
        host1:vr-a:vrf-1(config-if)#ip share-nexthop
    5. To fully configure the shared interface, assign an address (or make the interface unnumbered).
      host1(config-if)#ip address
