  1. Hi Rene,

    Is there a tutorial on EIGRP default routes using redistribution?


  2. hi Rene,
    In the case of ip default network as u explained above, I don’t understand why we need to configure a default route on R2 for the network as in R1 it already shows * next to the “D” for this EIGRP entry.

  4. Hi @wilder7bc,

    The ip default-network command is one of the weirder commands out there. I think I originally tried it on 12.4 when I wrote the lesson. On IOS 15.x, I can’t make it work…

    The funny thing is, when I load my config, R1 doesn’t see as a default network:

    R1#show ip route 
    D [90/3072] via, 00:03:30, GigabitEthernet0/1

    Once I remove and re-add the network command on R2, it does get propagated to R1:

    R2(config-router)#router eigrp 12
    R2(config-router)#no network
    R2(config-router)#network 19

    When you use an Ethernet port as an exit interface, what will happen depends on several factors including the IOS version and the platform that you are using. In some platforms/IOS combinations, what Rene has implemented will work as configured. However, there are some other situations in which it doesn’t. The following link shows a couple of examples where you have an IP address as a next hop IP or an interface as an exit interface. In this example, the use of an exit interface fails.
