    neighbor passive

    Syntax

    [ no | default ] neighbor { ipAddress | ipv6Address | peerGroupName } passive

    Release Information

    Command introduced before JunosE Release 7.1.0.
    ipv6Address variable added in JunosE Release 8.0.0.

    Description

    Configures the BGP speaker so that it only accepts inbound connections from, but does not initiate outbound connections to, the peer or peer group. The no version permits the initiation of outbound connections. The default version removes the explicit configuration from the peer or peer group and reestablishes inheritance of the feature configuration.

    Options

    • ipAddress—IP address of BGP neighbor
    • ipv6Address—IPv6 address of BGP neighbor
    • peerGroupName—Name of a BGP peer group. If you specify a BGP peer group by using the peerGroupName argument, all the members of the peer group inherit the characteristic configured with this command, unless it is overridden for a specific peer.
