EIGRP stub

Unanswered Question
Dec 10th, 2007

In a hup and spoke topology i configure a router which is connected with the core router as a stub eigrp summary. Also i configure a default route.

When i show ip route i can see all the paths to the network.

Shouldn't the routing table decrease in size and has only the connected routes and the default.



I have this problem too.

Configuring a site as an EIGRP Stub will not stop that site receiving all the remote routes automatically. You need to make sure that your other sites do not advertise routes into your EIGRP stub site.

So you need to filter out any routes being advertised to your EIGRP stub site either with

1) An ip summary-address eigrp statement under the interface that connects to the remote site in the hub site.

2) A distribute list in the EIGRP config in the hub site to stop any routes being propogated to the remote site.
