I redistribute 1.1.1.1 static routes into EIGRP and redistribute EIGRP into OSPF. What will 1.1.1.1 look as in OSPF? Will it be seen as an external route or what?

If it is all in the same router, then you will need redistribute static in OSPF as well.


When you redistribute from EIGRP to OSPF, it will redistribute only those EIGRP routes that are actually in the forwarding table. Your 1.1.1.1 route will not be in the forwarding table under EIGRP - it will be in as a static.
