redistribute connected vs network command under address-family ipv4 vrf

Unanswered Question

Hi there,

On my implementation, PE-CE link, point to point /30, I configured under address-family redistributed connected.

There is an example I've seen using network command such as below:


address-family ipv4 vrf test

no auto-summary

no synchronization

redistribute static

network mask


Is there any major/minor different between those implementation?

Thanks in advance.

I have this problem too.

The differnce should be on the ease of extended implementation and the standard followed ( as you seem to be asking from the Service Provider end)

Next time you add another interface, you will have to specify another network command for the /30 IP subnet used for PE - CE link.

Redistribute connected is used when when we want to redistribute the connected routes and with the help of network command we are using dynaic routing for this.
