  1. Hi William,

    Under topology base you will find commands that have to do with the EIGRP topology table. Stuff like redistribution, filtering, etc. Here’s an overview of all commands:

    R1(config-router)#router eigrp TEST                               
    R1(config-router)#address-family ipv4 unicast autonomous-system 1 
    R1(config-router-af)#topology base                                  
    Address Family Topology configuration commands:
      auto-summary         Enable automatic network number summarization
      cts                  EIGRP Trust

  2. Hi Rene,

    Could you please talk in deep about address-family and service-family?


  3. Hi Minh,

    Address-families are used for different protocols. For example, in EIGRP there is an address-family for IPv4 and another address-family for IPv6.

    For BGP, there are address families for unicast, multicast, VPN routes and each of those for both IPv4 and IPv6.

    The service family for EIGRP is used for SAF (Service Advertisement Framework). SAF is some framework that is used for Voice over IP. Instead of IPv4/IPv6, you can exchange SAF stuff with EIGRP .


  4. Hi Rene ,

    IN EIGRP NAME MODE , DO WE NEED TO BE SAME NAME in all of router within autonomous system.
