  1. Rene what will happen if both router-map and access-list are deny?

    route-map NAME deny 10
    match ip address 1
    ip access-list standard 1
    permit any 


  2. Hi George,

    Sure, here’s an example. We have a router that has learned some EIGRP routes on different interfaces:

    R1#show ip route eigrp 
    Codes: L - local, C - connected, S - static, R - RIP, M - mobile, B - BGP
           D - EIGRP, EX - EIGRP external, O - OSPF, IA - OSPF inter area 
           N1 - OSPF NSSA external type 1, N2 - OSPF NSSA external type 2
           E1 - OSPF external type 1, E2 - OSPF external type 2
           i - IS-IS, su - IS-IS summary, L1 - IS-IS level-1, L2 - IS-IS level-2
           ia - IS-IS inter area, * - candidate default, U - per-user static route

  3. Derek,
    Route-Maps are the swiss-army knife of Cisco. You can use them for all kinds of things in many different ways depending on the situation. With EIGRP, access-lists, prefix-lists, and route-maps are all options of a distribute-list. In other words, the “distribute-list” keyword is entered first, then you can choose which option you want after. Check out the available options below:

    R1(config-router)#distribute-list ?
      <1-199>      IP access list number
      <1300-2699>  IP expanded access list number
      WORD               Access-list name

  4. Mounir,
    You are right that your NET_192 access list would match and not match anything else (because of an implicit “deny” at the end of an access-list).

    Now, in order for a prefix-list to do the same thing, you must also use the prefix-list with something else, say a route-map. A prefix-list by itself will only match or not match a particular network prefix–it won’t perform an action such as permit or deny.

    Let’s start by writing the prefix list that will match only, since you are asking about this:

    (config)#ip prefix-list PL_MAT

  5. Hi Rene,

    I have a quick question on EIGRP filtering in general. Say I have 3 routers, R1, R2, and R3 all running EIGRP and connected.

    R1 has and
    If I want to advertise only to R3 but not R2…
    From reading your lesson, I learned that I can apply a distribute-list acl in on R3 to block the advertisement of…

    Can this be done on R1 to filter outbound EIGRP advertisement of only to R3 but not R2?
