What does the passive command provide to dynamic routing protocols?

[A]. Stops an interface from sending or receiving periodic dynamic updates.
[B]. Stops an interface from sending periodic dynamic updates but not from receiving updates.
[C]. Stops the router from receiving any dynamic updates.
[D]. Stops the router from sending any dynamic updates.

Answer: Option B


The passive command, short for passive-interface, stops regular updates from being sent out an interface. However, the interface can still receive updates.

When this passive command configure on RIP it will stop to send the send the updates. While config on EIGRP and ospf it will stop both (Sent and Receive).

RIP mean Routing Information Protocol.

The Routing Information Protocol (RIP) defines a way for routers, which connect networks using the Internet Protocol (IP), to share information about how to route traffic among networks.

Absolutely right @Sachin.

Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) is an advanced distance-vector routing protocol that is used on a computer network for automating routing decisions and configuration. The protocol was designed by Cisco Systems as a proprietary protocol, available only on Cisco routers.
