OSPF and RIP

Unanswered Question
Jul 21st, 2008

Hi,

I am trying to redistribute RIP into OSPF but im getting the following message;

"Only classful network is allowed"

And because of this i am not getting any RIP updates in my OSPF domain.

I have this problem too.

if you do "redistribute rip" then it will only redistribute the classfull networks, like 10.0.0.0/8, 16.0.0.0/8 etc.

Now if you want to redistribute all routes both classfull and classless then give the command

"redistribute rip subnets".

Hi,

Currently I am using the command "redistribute rip metric 10". Do u wanna me to change to redistribute rip subnets.

hey,

try doing it in 2 statements:

#redistribute rip subnets

#default-metric 10

maybe that will work. if it still comes up with an error, try moving to rip version 2.

The issue here is an OSPF issue. It would be the same if you use RIPv2 (or if you use EIGRP). dhananjoy correctly identified the issue is that if the subnets parameter is not used on the redistribute statement then only the classful networks (no subnets) are redistributed. You could use 2 statements or you can put both the subnets and metric parameters on the redistribute statement.
