distribute list and EIGRP

Answered Question
Jul 21st, 2008

I tried adding a distribute list command under the EIGRP routing process on an ASA, as I've done with routers before, that prevents the default route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 from being propagated to EIGRP neighbors. Except, it seems with the ASA, that instead of denying the route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0, it filters all routes from being installed into EIGRP. I have a standard access list

access-li 1 deny 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0

eigrp config

router eigrp 100

distribute-list 1 out

this has always worked in IOS, but seems to play differently in the ASA OS. How can I filter the default route on an ASA?

thank you,

Bill

I have this problem too.

To control the sending or receiving of candidate default route information, enter the following command:

hostname(config-router)# no default-information {in | out}

Configuring no default-information in causes the candidate default route bit to be blocked on received routes. Configuring no default-information out disables the setting of the default route bit in advertised routes.

Hope this helps.
