Hi All,

I am in a situation while Redistributing the Default Route from the BGP (External) to EIGRP??? But, I am not getting the default route in the eigrp domain...

Let me know that what i am missing here...


R1# sh ip route | in

B* [20/0] via xx.xx.xx.xx, 00:11:44



RTR02B2-2454AD1#sh run | b r e

router eigrp 100

redistribute static

redistribute bgp 65089


network *.*.*.* *.*.*.*

no auto-summary


Looking for quick response...

You must provide metrics for EIGRP for this route to be redistributed.


  • 1
  • 2
  • 3
  • 4
  • 5

Thanks Man, it worked with

router eigrp 100

redistribute bgp 65089 metric 1 1 1 1 1

Rate 5

Hi Mubasher,

By default you cannot redistribute from BGP into IGP protocols. You need to add the command 'bgp redistribute-internal' under router bgp to make this work.

This is true for routes learned via iBGP only. This appears to be the case in question.

A route-map restricting only default route to be redistributed would also help.

Assuming the following:

-These router are connected to a WAN

-RTR02 is the router closer to the default gateway.

-R1 is a far-end router with a local EIGRP network.

If that is the case RTR02 is correctly redistributing

at the R1 site; for that route to be re-distributed to the LAN you routing configuration in R1 sould look like:

router eigrp 100

redistribute bgp 65abc


default-metric 44210 20 255 255 4470

no auto-summary


router bgp 65abc

no synchronization

bgp log-neighbor-changes

redistribute eigrp 100

neighbor aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd remote-as xyz

no auto-summary

That metric is a default for a DS/3; for a T1 will be a bit diferent.
