EIGRP is hybrid routing protocol that uses characteristics of distance vector and link state technolgies.
I am not clear what distance vector technologies it use.
Can anyone help me to understand it?
Scott and Mohammed have provided interesting explanations of the distance vector concept. I would like to suggest an explanation from a slightly different perspective. In link state protocols a router originates advertisement of its links that are directly connected and passes along advertisements (LSAs) originated by other routers. So each link stat router knows exactly which router originated each advertisement (LSA). In diatance vector each router receives advertisements from its neighbors, applies the local metric, and then advertises to its neighbors all the routes in its own routing table. So a distance vector router sees all advertisements as being originated from its neighbors and does not know what router really originated the advertisement. And that is the operation of EIGRP, each router sees all advertisements as being originated from its neighbors.
Distance Vector = "Hops"
EIGRP looks at the overall distace by generating a metric for the segment it sees added to the segment behind the next hop(s), if one exists.
The metrics are things like bandwidth & delay (primarily).
Here is a link to the onine version of Cisco's Internetworking Guide; it has some excellent explanations on the basics.
