I am trying to migrate the routing protocol in my network from Ripv2 to EIGRP. On my main router i run both protocols with redistribution as the following:
router eigrp 24
redistribute rip .......
redistribute eigrp 24 metric 2
What the metric 2 means. It takes values from 0 to 16. Does it really matter which number shall i put and where.
I tried to put number 16 and i had some problems with the network so i changed it to 2 . Why is that?
Thanks a lot
