EIGRP: Passive Interfaces

The intended use of EIGRP interfaces to advertise and accept and process EIGRP packets is meant only for interfaces actually participating in the EIGRP network.  To prevent interfaces from participating in EIGRP and no longer accept/process EIGRP packets you can configure the passive-interface command for those interfaces individually or globally, and enabling only  the interfaces you want to participate.
