BGP as listen-only to connections


Please is there any way to configure BGP process to be in some form of listen-only mode towards neighbors? Meaning not transitioning to Active and reaching out, but reacting to incoming connection only. I know about bgp listen used for dynamic neighbors discovery, but I can have static neighbor configured. Technically it can be arranged with ACLs somehow, but is there any command under neighbor?


  • OK, just after I wrote this I found solution ... must had been either blind or looking for overly complicated solutions [:)]

    neighbor X.X.X.X transport connection-mode passive

  • Asta, looks like you found it ;) That's how you do it.
