By default, IS-IS, OSPF, and RIP routes are available both for unicast forwarding and multicast reverse-path forwarding checks. The no version restores the default value, unicast for BGP or both for IS-IS, OSPF, and RIP.

    • multicast—Specifies that routes for the protocol are available only for multicast route path forwarding checks; this option is not available for BGP
