Prefix list not working as it should ... help!

I am attempting to apply a prefix list to filter EIGRP routes (via a distribute-list) but it is not working.

R2 is connected to R4 via point-to-point frame relay on DLCI 204 (frame-relay map is up and they are EIGRP neighbours). R4 has 192.168.4.0/24 as a LAN and is advertsing it to R2 (connected via DLCI 402).

R2 (sub) interface has IP 192.168.24.1

R4 interface has IP 192.168.24.2

My goal is to filter any route for 192.168.4.0/24 that R4 sends to R2. This will force R2 to learn about a route to 192.168.4.0/24 via 10.4.4.1 (this is R1 - a router also connected to R4). But the prefix list, despite being applied to the distribution list is not working. My setup is as follows:

R2#show ip prefix-list
ip prefix-list block4: 2 entries
   seq 5 deny 192.168.4.0/24
   seq 10 permit 0.0.0.0/0 le 32

R2#show run | s router
router eigrp 12
network 10.2.2.0 0.0.0.3
network 10.4.4.0 0.0.0.3
network 172.16.23.0 0.0.0.255
network 172.16.24.0 0.0.0.255
distribute-list block4 in Serial0/0.204
no auto-summary

R2#show ip int br

R2#

As you can see, despite the application of the distribution list, R2 is still getting the route for 192.168.4.0/24 from R4...

This working using a standard ACL.

I can post a full network diagram if you wish but hopefully this should be enough information. Can anyone help?

Prefix list not working as it should ... help!

Hello steven,

u have a tiny little problem! unlike using ACLs, you have to use a keyword for utilizing prefix-lists with distribute-list.

distribute-list PREFIX block4 in s0/0.204

Hope it Helps,

Perfect!

Thank you so much. I've been going crazy over this one for a while.

It must have been looking for ACL named block4 without the prefix word in place.

Much obliged.
