    Release Information

    Command introduced before JunosE Release 7.1.0.


    Defines a rule to forward all packets that match the specified classifier control list. If you do not specify a classifier control list using the classifier-group keyword, the router will select all packets from the interface in the direction of the attached policy list. The no version removes the rule from the policy list; the suspend version temporarily suspends the forward rule; the no suspend version resumes application of a suspended rule.

    See the forward interface and forward next-hop commands for descriptions of the Classifier Group Configuration mode versions of this command.

    • ignore-default-route—Ignores the default route as a consideration for the next hop (IPv4 and IPv6 policy lists)
    • vrName—Name of the virtual router (IPv4 and IPv6 policy lists)
    • orderValue—Order of this forward rule within the single classifier; in the range 1–32767; default value is 100 (IPv4 and IPv6 policy lists)
    • claclName—Classifier control list used to classify packets for this policy
