Hello Rasesh,

the leak-map option is associated with the

ip summary-address eigrp xx command

and allows to advertise some subnet components in addition to the summary route



There is no leak-map option associated to the eigrp stub command

The summary keyword permits the EIGRP Stub Routing feature to send summary routes. Summary routes can be created manually with the summary address command or automatically at a major network border router with the auto-summary command enabled. This option is enabled by default.

So you could use the summary-address command out the eigrp stub router but why?

if the summary route is enough it is better to advertise only that.

Hope to help

leak-map Allow dynamic prefixes based on the leak-map

Hello Rasesh,

I see and I think here the leak-map can have a different meaning:

for the prefixes specified with the leak-map the router can behave as a standard EIGRP router (for example it can learn and propagate prefixes matching the leak-map).

However, if it is so in a dual homed scenario the leak-map can increase the scope of the Query range involving the stub but leaking router.

Hope to help
