Default-information originate

Default-information originate can be used under ospf and Rip .it can not be used under eigrp. so if we have to populate a default route in eigrp what option do we have ?

Hi, 

 

you can

1. configure static default  route and redistibute it into EIGRP 

or 

2. use summary address 

RTR(config)#interface gigabitEthernet x/y #outgoing interface
RTR(config-if)#ip summary-address eigrp 1 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0

 

 

Please don't forget to rate helpful posts.

what is mean by  # outgoing interface

Outgoing interface is the one where you want to send all traffic to. e.g. if you have a core switch connected with gig0/0 to you FW and your FW is connected to your Internet router. On the switch the outgoing interface is the one pointing to the FE (i.e. Gig0/0)

Hello 

just like to add by default eigrp summary routes have a administrative distance of 5 

 

so it you you have any other static routes aplli d then suggest to drop the summary default 

 

RTR(config-if)#ip summary-address eigrp 1 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 1



kind regards
Paul

To redistribute default route to EIGRP , you have to use metrics

Use following example as reference:

#Router Eigrp 1

#redistribute static metric 100000 1000 255 1 1500 

 

you should have valid default route in your routing table as well
