  1. Hi Rene,

    Is there a tutorial on EIGRP default routes using redistribution?


  2. Hi Shashank,

    The /24 network is used as the default network which means R1 will send packets with an unknown destination there. However, R2 still has to know where to forward packets to…it has no clue how to reach /24 so that’s why we need the default route.


  3. Hi Rene

    The ip default-network command works on IOS 12.4 but it doesn’t work on IOS 15 anymore.

    I tested and did not work!!

    what should i do in new version

    and why change version 12



  4. Hmm I should try that. The command is still accepted right?

    The easiest method is probably advertising a default route through redistribution or by using the summary-address command on an interface. I never really liked the ip default-network command.
