CDP not publishing network

Answered Question
Dec 27th, 2007

I'm new to ODR/CDP and having a problem getting a network dynamically published from my spoke router. My setup is this:

The hub is a 3640, and the spoke is a 2600, both with IOS 12.3. The 3640 is running both ODR and RIP. The 2600 has no routing protocols enabled, but ip routing is enabled. S0/1 of the 3640 is connected to S0/0 of the 2600. 3640-S0/1 is and 2600-S0/0 is On the 2600 Ethernet0/0 is assigned

On the 2600, in show ip route, I see an 'o' entry for the default route to (correct) and 'C' for and On the 3640, show ip route has an 'o' entry for and 'C' for So far, all as I expect. Pings between all interfaces on the 3640 and 2600 are successful.

The problem is no other router connected to my hub (all other routers are using RIP) have any entry for For another router connected to the 3640, I would expect to see an 'R' entry for pointing back to the 3640. The route is invisible outside of the hub and spoke.

All of routes and interfaces are working fine through RIP on all routers. On the 3640, under router rip, I've tried having network and not having it, same results both ways. I've also tried adding in 'redistribute odr' into 'router rip', again, with no affect.

I'm missing something. Any ideas?

I have this problem too.

Paolo is right on target (as always :)). When redistributing from a dynamic routing protocol into RIP, you need to specify a metric - if you don't, it's automatically set to 16 (unreachable).
