Objet : RIP with passive option

Hi, this is my first post in a mailing list. I hope I do it fine.

My server should receive routes via RIP.
I have tried it on Ubuntu 10.04 with bird from ppa:cz.nic-labs/bird .
The server should work with the interface option passive.
(Receive routes and do not send)

My config file looks like:

protocol kernel {


    scan time 20;

    export all;


protocol device {

    scan time 10;


protocol rip {

    export none;

    import all;

    interface "eth0" {

            passive yes;


    debug all;


If I start bird, I get

bird: /etc/bird.conf, line 15: syntax error

I tried "yes", "true" and "" as switch for the passive option.

I posted the question at stackexchange too. (

Thank you in advance.
