route redistribution RIP and EIGRP

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by slipstream_242, Jul 15, 2004.

  1. Hi all,

    Just playing with route redistribution for the first time and trying to
    redistribute rip to eigrp and visa versa, on the router with the route
    redistribution, is sends the rip update but advertises the route as a metric
    of 16 (unreachable) however, the metric should only be 1 or 2 at the most.
    (that route is on an Ethernet port connected to a switch)

    I have redistributed rip to eigrp and eigrp to rip but I don't seem to
    get much luck when pinging one network to the other. I can ping the serial
    interface of the network in subnet 4 but subnet 8 (connected to the Ethernet
    port) doesn't work. I bet its something simple but I`m not sure at this
    point what I am missing.

    Thanks in advance.

    You need to specify your metric on your redistribute statement because eigrp
    metrics are too high for a rip routing process. Fore an example assuming
    you would redistribute eigrp process 1 and assign a metric as 2 use this
    command:


    redistribute eigrp 1 metric 2"slipstream_242" <>
