I am using 3600 Router ther is in SHOW RUNNING COnfigurection one line is mention i.e. "ip forward-protocol nd" what is that??
Pls help us to provide the details.
So we do not agree (and people with differing outlooks and opinions is part of what makes the forum so excellent). My advice was based on these factors:
- I believe that the command is harmless. Assuming that your research is correct (and I do believe that it is) then there will be no ND traffic on the network and the presence of forward-protocol nd will have no effect.
- IOS inserts the statement into the running config. I do not know why (do you)? Perhaps there are occasional instances where IOS inserts a command that does nothing, but I believe that most of the time when IOS inserts a command that it is there for a reason. Since I am not sure about this particular command I tend to not want to mess with IOS and leave the command alone.
- it has been my experience that sometimes when IOS inserts a command that it really does not want that command to be removed. I do not remember the specifics but I do remember an experience where there was some command that had appeared in the running config and I decided to remove it. To my surprise I could enter no but the command was still there.
So if I believe that the command is harmless, if I believe that it might be there for some purpose that we do not understand, and if I am not sure that it will really come out, then my advice is to just ignore it. Your advice is different, and that is ok. Now Abhinay has a decision to make. If he chooses to remove the command I hope that he will post back to the forum indicating what the results might have been.
see command reference
Forwards Network Disk (ND) packets. This protocol is used by older diskless Sun workstations.
the command works in conjuction with ip helper-address and tells for what protocols the relay function should be performed
Hope to help
