Enable Passive Interfaces

A passive interface is one that does not send or receive routing information. Configuring an interface as a passive interface suppresses routing updates (both receiving and sending).

Although the passive interface does not send or receive routing updates, the network on that interface is still included in OSPF updates sent through other interfaces. You can remove an interface from passive interfaces using the no ipv6 ospf passive command.

  1. Enter an interface type in INTERFACE mode.
    interface ethernet 
                                           node/slot/port[:subport]
                                        
  2. Configure the interface as a passive interface in INTERFACE mode.
    ipv6 ospf passive

Configure Passive Interfaces

OS10(config)# interface ethernet 1/1/6
                                 OS10(conf-if-eth1/1/6)# ipv6 ospf passive
