Table 1: show rip neighbor Output Fields

Field Name

Field Description


Name of the RIP neighbor.


Beginning with Junos OS Release 11.1, when you configure demand circuits, the output displays a demand circuit (DC) flag next to neighbor interfaces configured for demand circuits.

If you configure demand circuits at the [edit protocols rip group group-name neighbor neighbor-name] hierarchy level, the output shows only the neighboring interface that you specifically configured as a demand circuit. If you configure demand circuits at the [edit protocols rip group group-name] hierarchy level, all of the interfaces in the group are configured as demand circuits. Therefore, the output shows all of the interfaces in that group as demand circuits.


State of the connection: Up or Dn (Down).

Source Address
