Redistributing bgp default route into eigrp

    We have a customer setup on a small MPLS network. The MPLS backbone
    uses bgp, and the customer uses eigrp. Whenever the customer changes
    or has a failure in their network, the default route that was learned
    via bgp drops out and doesn't come back. It is overwritten by a higher
    cost default route from their eigrp network.

    Any ideas on how to make sure that the preferred or lowest cost route
    is always used?

    Your description of the problem could be more detailed.
    However, you may need to tweak the admin distance for the BGP route which
    gets redistributed into the EIGRP domain to make that particular route look
    prefered ........

    Please help me. Imagine that there are 3 router running BGP on it. And they are all on different ASes. So one router is connected with two routers on different AS. All i want to do is configure the router to do "dynamically traffic balancing" depending on bandwidth/congestion/ of the external link to those 2 routers on different ASes. Of course BGP is routing the traffic to the best path. But can router detect the congestion of the link to ebgp peers and do load balance.
    Thank you, and waiting for reply

    We are having an ongoing problem with BGP to EIGRP redistribution on
    particular VPN within our MPLS Network and would like a quote on
    technical support from your company.

    The devices involved include 2x Cisco 7200 NPE-G1s acting as PE, and
    Cisco 2800 Series acting as CE.

    CE1 - EIGRP - announces default route
    PE1 - EIGRP redistributed into an VPNV4 BGP TABLE
    PE2 - VPNV4 BGP is redistributed into a EIGRP process to the customer
    CE2 - EIGRP

    The route is visible in the EIGRP Database on CE1 and PE1 and in the
    tables on PE1 and PE2.

    Unfortunately, this only happens when the customer flaps the route
    behind CE1 (they test their failover to another MPLS network) -- when
    this happens, the route drops off of the EIGRP database at PE2 and
    therefore never makes it to CE2. To resolve the issue, a "CLEAR IP
    ROUTE VRF VRFNAME" command is issued and the route
    reappears in both the EIGRP database of PE2 and in the route tables of
