  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. 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.

  4. Rene you should give this section a rewrite - you suggest 2 methods which are both not mentioned by cisco and are partly legacy.

    Default-route injection into eigrp should be done via redistribution (prefered) or via summarization on the interface:

    We should be aware of all possible methods but always prefer the best practices from cisco.

    Nope. Do you? Maybe just paste the config into a code window.
