BGP redistribution to EIGRP

Hi all,

I'm trying to redistribute BGP to EIGRP and vice versa. I am succussfully redistributing EIGRP to BGP, but can't get EIGRP routes into BGP.


Here's my config. Any guidance or assistance would be very much appreciated. 

router eigrp 100


redistribute static route-map DEFAULT_ROUTE

redistribute bgp 65535

passive-interface default

no passive-interface FastEthernet0/0


router bgp 65535

bgp router-id

bgp log-neighbor-changes

redistribute eigrp 100 route-map EIGRP_REDISTRIBUTE

neighbor remote-as 65535

neighbor password ciscobgp

no auto-summary

ip access-list extended EIGRP_ROUTES_TO_BGP

permit ip any any



ip prefix-list DEFAULT seq 5 permit


route-map EIGRP_REDISTRIBUTE permit 20

match ip address EIGRP_ROUTES_TO_BGP


route-map DEFAULT_ROUTE permit 10

match ip address prefix-list DEFAULT

Thanks in advance.

Re: BGP redistribution to EIGRP

Add "bgp redistribute-internal" to your bgp process. By default, iBGP doesn't redistribute into an IGP. The reason for this is simply the amount of routes that a bgp router can receive could overload an igp very easily, so you would definitely want to filter routes out when doing this.

After you add this, clear your bgp neighbors and you should start seeing routes.

Hey Guys,I think the problem

Hey Guys,

I think the problem is that you don't have a metric assigned to the redistribution statement under eigrp.

redistribute bgp 65535 metric 100000 500 255 1 1500

Yep, adding the bgp

Yep, adding the bgp redistribute-internal to the BGP config and redistribute bgp <AS_NUM> metric 100000 500 255 1 1500 to the EIGRP config sorted this out for me... so both of these answers combined from [@j.blakley] & makrez969 did the trick. Thanks!
