    bridge route


    [ no ] bridge bridgeGroupName route { ip | mpls | pppoe }

    Release Information

    Command introduced before JunosE Release 7.1.0.


    Enables routing of IP, MPLS, or PPPoE packets in a specified bridge group when concurrent routing and bridging (CRB) is enabled for all bridge groups on the router. The command uses the routing table entries to determine the path on which to send the packet toward its final destination. The no version disables routing of the specified protocol in the specified bridge group.

    If you issue this command for a protocol that is not currently configured in the interface stack for that bridge group, the bridge group discards (drops) those packets.

    Note: The bridge route command is available for a bridge group only after you issue the bridge crb command to enable CRB for all bridge groups on the router.

    The bridge route command is not valid for bridge groups configured as VPLS instances. If you attempt to issue the bridge route command for a VPLS instance, the router displays an error message and rejects the command.
