Hello Khan,

for EIGRP you can use

show ip eigrp topology with all of its options

for RIP you can see the DB

sh ip rip database

then if you know the other router ip address you can also

sh ip route rip | inc next-hop-ip-address

sh ip route eigrp | inc next-hop-ip-address

Hope to help

Thanks Giuseppe its always pleasure to talk to you as you have solved my many problems :-) and i always give you rating for that which you sh ip route rip | inc next-hop-ip-address only gives you routes you are getting from the peer (rip router) it doesnt tell you abt the routes you are advertising...secondly sh rip database tells you the all info but it doesnt tell you what exactly you are passing to your rip neigbour ????is there any otehr way

Hello Khan,

probably to know what routes you advertise in RIP (to all possible neighbors)

you can use

show ip protocol

it provides a lot of information see the section routing for network

to see what routes are sent to a specific neighbor you probably need to use a debug

debug ip rip ?

so you can see them on the fly (every 30 seconds they are sent out)

Hope to help
