  1. Hello Rene,
    about access-list, I have to read in this way: for prefix
    my local router in which run ospf,rip and Eigrp have to put in routing table that one learned by Rip…is it correct my reasoning?
    well we use access-list to permit that prefix is handle only by rip?

  2. I don’t get this:

  3. Hi David,

    Good question. Administrative distance is always local…it’s never shared between routers.


  4. i tried the

    distance 150 1

    where access list 1 is “permit host” is my source ip where i get EIGRP EX routes. the EX AD is still 170. its not changing

  5. Hi John,

    I’ve seen this problem before, for some reason it doesn’t work on EIGRP external routes. I just tried it again myself:

    router eigrp 1
    distance 80 1
    access-list 1 permit

    Where is the address of the network and 1.1.10/24 is the network I’m trying to change. When it’s an EIGRP internal route it works right away, external it doesn’t…

    The only other option is using the “eigrp distance” command for all external routes I think.
