Hi every body!
I just want to confirm one thing.
Does passive-interface tell the router not to send any routing protocol related packets on the specified interface or it also tell the router ignore the received routing protocol related packets on the interface?
Thanks a lot!
Here is what Cisco has to say:
With most routing protocols, the passive-interface command restricts outgoing advertisements only. However, when used with Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), the effect is slightly different. The use of the passive-interface command in EIGRP suppresses the exchange of hello packets between two routers, which results in the loss of their neighbor relationship. This stops not only routing updates from being advertised, but it also suppresses incoming routing updates.
