Release Information

Statement introduced before JUNOS Release 7.4.

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 9.0 for EX Series switches.

Description

Do not forward packets addressed to this destination. Instead, drop the packets, do not send ICMP unreachable messages to the packets’ originators, and install a reject route for this destination into the routing table.

Default

When an aggregate route becomes active, it is installed in the routing table with a reject next hop, which means that ICMP unreachable messages are sent.

Required Privilege Level
