Default route for EIGRP from OSPF

Unanswered Question
Mar 26th, 2009


I am trying to redistribute a default route learned by OSPF into EIGRP to send onto an EIGRP neighbour router but can not get it to work.

I have tried using OSPF external redistribution and a route-map.

Any ideas



I have this problem too.

1.) You created a route map named "ospf" but haven't applied it anywhere for redistribution. It matches an ACL, and then nothing.

2.) You haven't set the seed metric on the eigrp instance. When you redistribute another protocol into eigrp, you must give it a default eigrp metric. Remember, after redistribution, this OSPF route is going to be masquerading around in your eigrp domain as an eigrp route. All eigrp routes have their metrics associated with them, so give these OSPF routes theirs.

PS. Do you need those crytpo certificates enabled? If not, you can get rid of them by doing a no crypto pki trustpoint TP-self-signed-998521732. It will ask you if you're sure, and you will confirm.

Then configure "no ip http secure-server"

Save the config, then reload (when you have permission to do so, of course).

Hi Victor,

Thanks, that did it.

I know about the Crypto, also playing with SDM on the routers.

Thanks for the help
