ipv4
Defines an IPv4 address on this interface. The format is ip-address / prefix (for example, 192.168.1.77/24).

You can define multiple IP addresses for a single virtual tunnel interface, by creating multiple address configuration nodes.

ipv6
Defines an IPv6 address on this interface. The format is ipv6-address / prefix (for example, 2001:db8::/64).

You can define multiple IPv6 addresses for a single virtual tunnel interface, by creating multiple address configuration nodes.

interfaces vti <vtix> firewall <state>

Applies a firewall instance, or rule set, to an interface.

set interfaces vti vtix firewall { in firewall-name | l2 name | out firewall-name }
delete interfaces vti vtix firewall [ in firewall-name | l2 name | out firewall-name ]
show interfaces vti vtix firewall [ in | l2 | out ]
interface
A type of interface. For detailed keywords and arguments, refer to Supported Interface Types.
in firewall-name
Applies a firewall rule set to inbound traffic on the specified interface.
l2
Applies a firewall rule set to bridge traffic.
out firewall-name
Applies a firewall rule set to outbound traffic on the specified interface.

Configuration mode

interfaces interface {
    vto vtix        firewall {
            in firewall-name
            l2 name
            out firewall-name
    }
}

Use this command to apply an IPv6 firewall instance, or rule set, to an interface.

A firewall has no effect on traffic traversing the system or destined to the system until a firewall rule set has been applied to an interface or a virtual interface by using this command.

To use the firewall feature, you must define a firewall rule set as a named firewall instance by using the security firewall name command. You then apply the firewall instance to interfaces, virtual interfaces, or both by using this command. After the instance is applied, the instance acts as a packet filter.

The firewall instance filters packets in one of the following ways, depending on what you specify when you apply it.

  • in—If you apply the rule set as in, the firewall filters packets entering the interface.
  • out—If you apply the rule set as out, the firewall filters packets leaving the interface.

For each interface, you can apply up to three firewall instances: one firewall in instance, one firewall out instance, and one firewall local instance.

Make sure the firewall instance you apply to an interface is already defined, or you may experience unintended results. If you apply a firewall instance that does not exist to an interface, the implicit firewall rule of allow all is applied.

Use the set form of this command to apply an IPv6 firewall instance, or rule set, to an interface.

Use the delete form of this command to delete an IPv6 firewall instance, or rule set, from an interface.

Use the show form of this command to display the configuration of an IPv6 firewall instance, or rule set, for an interface.

interfaces vti <vtix> mtu <mtu>

Sets the MTU for a virtual tunnel interface.

set interfaces vti vtix mtu mtu
delete interfaces vti vtix mtu
show interfaces vti vtix mtu

If this value is not set, the default MTU of 1500 is used.

vtix
The identifier of the virtual tunnel interface. The identifiers range from vti0 through vti x, where x is a positive integer.
mtu
Sets the MTU, in octets, for the interface. The numbers range from 68 through 9000.

Configuration mode

interfaces {
    vti vtix {
        mtu mtu
    }
}

Use this command to set the maximum transmission unit (MTU) for an virtual tunnel interface.

During forwarding, IPv4 packets larger than the MTU are fragmented unless the “Don't Fragment” (DF) bit is set in the IP header. In that case, the packets are dropped and an ICMP “fragmentation needed” message is returned to the sender.

Use the set form of this command to specify the MTU.

Use the delete form of this command to remove MTU value and restore the default behavior.

Use the show form of this command to view MTU configuration.

monitor interfaces vti <vtix> traffic

monitor interfaces vti vtix traffic [ detail [ filter filter-name | unlimited [ filter filter-name ] ] | filter filter-name | save filename | unlimited [ filter filter-name ] ] ]
vtix
