configure pim vlan trusted-gateway

configure pim {ipv4 | ipv6} [{vlan} vlan_name] trusted-gateway [policy | none]


Configures a trusted neighbor policy.

Syntax Description

ipv4 Specifies the IPv4 address family.
ipv6 Specifies the IPv6 address family.
vlan_name Specifies a VLAN name.
policy Specifies a policy file name.
none Specifies no policy file, so all gateways are trusted.


No policy file, so all gateways are trusted.

Usage Guidelines

Because PIM leverages the unicast routing capability that is already present in the switch, the access policy capabilities are, by nature, different. When the PIM protocol is used for routing IP multicast traffic, the switch can be configured to use a policy file to determine trusted PIM router neighbors for the VLAN on the switch running PIM. This is a security feature for the PIM interface.


The following example configures a trusted neighbor policy on the VLAN backbone using the policy "nointernet":

configure pim vlan backbone trusted-gateway nointernet
