Release Information

Statement introduced before JUNOS Release 7.4.


Configure a Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) IPv4 group.


group-id—VRRP group identifier. If you enable MAC source address filtering on the interface, you must include the virtual MAC address in the list of source MAC addresses that you specify in the source-address-filter statement. MAC addresses ranging from 00:00:5e:00:01:00 through 00:00:5e:00:01:ff are reserved for VRRP, as defined in RFC 2338. The VRRP group number must be the decimal equivalent of the last hexadecimal byte of the virtual MAC address.

Range: 0 through 255

The remaining statements are explained separately.
