interfaces <interface> ip pim mode <mode>

Specifies the PIM mode on an IPv4 interface.

set interfaces interface ip pim mode mode
delete interfaces interface ip pim mode mode
show interfaces interface ip pim mode mode
interface
The type of interface. For a list of supported interfaces and detailed syntax, see interfaces <interface> ip pim.
mode
The PIM mode that is enabled for an interface. The mode is one of the following:

dense: Enable PIM dense mode.

dense-passive: Enable passive operation for PIM dense mode.

sparse: Enable PIM sparse mode.

sparse-passive: Enable passive operation for PIM sparse mode.

sparse-dense: Enable PIM sparse-dense mode.

sparse-dense-passive: Enable passive operation for PIM sparse-dense mode.

Configuration mode


interfaces interface {
    ip {
        pim {
            mode [dense|dense-passive|sparse|sparse-dense|sparse-dense-passive|sparse-passive]
        }
    }
}

Use this command to specify the PIM mode on an interface. Use the dense or sparse keyword to enable PIM dense mode or PIM sparse mode on an interface. Use the dense-passive or sparse-passive keyword to stop PIM transactions on an interface, allowing only Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) to be active. Use the sparse-dense keyword to enable PIM sparse-dense mode on an interface. The mode of a particular group (G) depends on the presence of an RP for that group (denoted RP(G)). When RP(G) is present, the mode is sparse for a group; otherwise, it is dense.

Use the set form of this command to specify the PIM mode for an interface.

Use the delete form of this command to disable PIM on an interface.

Use the show form of this command to display the PIM mode configuration.
