BSCI EIGRP Default Route

Unanswered Question

On page 17 of the bsci quick reference PDF, it states that the following config will create a static default route and then include it in EIGRP:

ip route

router eigrp 7


My book states that eigrp will only pass a quad zero static default route if it uses an interface, not an ip address, in the ip route statement.

Which is correct?

Also on the same page, the "ip default-network" makes no note of the restrictions on using this that must be included in the eigrp process "network"

I guess could already be passed into the eigrp process by another router...

Am I out of my mind here?

Hi, Paul

Do a lab test on your questions. Here is my conclusion:

1.A static route using a interface as the next-hop will be considerded directly connected.

2.A static route using an ip address (must be reachable) as the next-hop will be considerded a normal static route.

3.Network command under the eigrp process only has effect on directly connected routes.

4.A directly connected static routes will be advertised out if there is a network command incluldes this route, while a normal static route will not.

5. For those nomal static routes on which the network command has no effect, use redistribute static command instead.

6. Both and default route defined by the "ip defalut-network" command apply to the same criteria. If they are directly conneted, use network command to advertise them out. If they are via a next-hop ip address, use redistribute static command instead.
