  1. awesome lessons. especially the

    “EIGRP auto-summary will only create summary routes for directly connected networks, not for routes you learn from other EIGRP routers.”

    i just learned it here.

    thanks rene!

  2. Good to hear you like it! I think that’s one of the things that is important to know, most people assume EIGRP will just summarize anything when you use auto-summary.

  3. Hi Rene
    I got this “EIGRP auto-summary will only create summary routes for directly connected networks, not for routes you learn from other EIGRP routers.”
    But what about OSPF auto-summary route. Does it do the same thing ?
    Thank you so much .

  4. Hi guys,

    so can we say that the auto-summary command is the same for EIGRP and RIP?
    When enabled, routes will be summarized to the class A, B or C network and no mask will be send with the update message?

    Thanks
    Florian

  5. Hello florian

    Essentially, yes, that is correct. However, EIGRP unlike RIP will automatically install a discard route in the local routing table. The discard route is one that has as an exit interface the Null0 interface.

    I hope this has been helpful!
