Release Information

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 7.6.


For Gigabit Ethernet interfaces only, explicitly enable autonegotiation and remote fault. In this mode, you can manually configure remote fault options. Include the no-auto-negotiation statement to disable autonegotiation. When you configure the Tri-Rate Ethernet copper interface to operate at 1 Gbps, autonegotiation must be enabled.


Autonegotiation is automatically enabled. No explicit action is taken after the autonegotiation is complete or if the negotiation fails.


no-auto-negotiation—Disables explicit autonegotiation.

remote-fault local-interface-online | local-interface-offline—(Optional) Manually configure remote fault on an interface. Specify remote fault as online or offline.

Default: online

Required Privilege Level
