Configure an interface to accept PIM join or prune messages based on a specified policy.

A device might not accept PIM joins if the upstream neighbor address in the join packet is not that device's address. This option enables the device to accept and to install PIM (S,G) join states that the device would not normally accept.

Configure one or more routing policies that specify the upstream neighbor addresses for which the interface should always accept PIM joins. Then you can configure this statement with those policy options. Use the prefix-list and policy-statement options at the [edit policy-options] hierarchy to configure a routing policy.

For example, the following configuration creates a policy named ajaf-101 that always accepts join messages from upstream neighbors in a prefix list named rtr-101:
