Dummy Interfaces

Dummy interfaces — much like the loopback, except you can have as many as you want. Dummy interfaces can be used as interfaces that always stay up (in the same fashion to loopbacks in IOS), or for testing purposes.

Configuration commands:

    dummy <dum[0-999]>
    + address           IP address
    description         Description
    disable             Disable interface
    > ip                IPv4 routing parameters
    > ipv6              IPv6 routing parameters
    redirect            Incoming packet redirection destination
    > traffic-policy    Traffic-policy for interface
