Hierarchy Level


Associate a routing table group with the routing device’s interfaces, and specify routing table groups into which interface routes are imported.

By default, IPv4 interface routes (also called direct routes) are imported into routing table inet.0, and IPv6 interface routes are imported into routing table inet6.0. If you are configuring alternate routing tables for use by some routing protocols, it might be necessary to import the interface routes into the alternate routing tables. To define the routing tables into which interface routes are imported, you create a routing table group and associate it with the routing device’s interfaces.

To create the routing table groups, include the passive statement at the [edit routing-options] hierarchy level.

If you have configured a routing table, configure the OSPF primary instance at the [edit protocols ospf] hierarchy level with the statements needed for your network so that routes are installed in inet.0 and in the forwarding table. Make sure to include the routing table group.

To export local routes, include the export statement.

To export LAN routes, include the lan option. To export point-to-point routes, include the point-to-point option.

Only local routes on point-to-point interfaces configured with a destination address are exportable.


inet—Specify the IPv4 address family.

inet6—Specify the IPv6 address family.

lan—Export LAN routes.

point-to-point—Export point-to-point routes.

The remaining statements are explained separately. See CLI Explorer.

Required Privilege Level

routing—To view this statement in the configuration.

routing-control—To add this statement to the configuration.

Release Information

Statement introduced before Junos OS Release 7.4.


On EX Series switches, only dynamically learned routes can be imported from one routing table group to another.
