Usage Guidelines

ICMP Router Discovery Protocol (IRDP) allows client machines to determine what default gateway address to use. The switch sends out IP packets at the specified intervals identifying itself as a default router. IRDP enabled client machines use this information to determine which gateway address to use for routing data packets to other networks.

If no optional argument is specified, all the IP interfaces are affected.


The following example enables IRDP on VLAN "accounting":

enable irdp vlan accounting
