reject in "show route"

‎02-21-2019 10:55 AM

Hi Guys,

 

I see 'reject' when I issue the 'show route' command for a particular subnet.

 


pav@XX> show route

inet.0: 5 destinations, 5 routes (5 active, 0 holddown, 0 hidden)
+ = Active Route, - = Last Active, * = Both


192.168.xx.xx/32 *[Local/0] 1w3d 02:50:10
Reject

 

Could you please let me know what does Reject mean ?

 

Thanking you.

Regards,

Pavan Katakam

It indicates that one of the interfaces configured with 192.168.x.x/X ip address is currently down. So when the device receives any packets destined to that interface ip, device will drop the packet and send destination network unreachable messages [meaning of reject] to the source system.

Hi, Pavan

 

Reject means that any packet matching that route will be dropped. One of the cases where I have seen this is when we configure proxy-arp. By any chance that address was configured under proxy-arp? if not, could you check where in your configuration is that address configured:

 

# show | display set | match [address]
