EIGRP and Null0

Hi Everyone,

I have router A->B->C running eigrp 1 on all of them.  Router C is running Tunnel gre multipoint and all of its spokes connecting to C get summarization of certain subnets.

Router A is advertising 192.218.96.0/22 and 192.110.88.0/24

RouterC tunnel configuration

Question? Why 192.218.96.0/22 had a directly connected to Null0 and the other doesn't? Can someone help me understand the reason?

Thank you....

Cheers!!!

Re: EIGRP and Null0

mguzman4158,

I just set this up on a few routers and the reason why you see the /24 is because IOS uses a longest-prefix match (/24 is longer than /22). If you type the following command, "show ip route eigrp" you can see all three routes as follows:

R1#show ip route eigrp
D    192.110.88.0/24 [90/409600] via 192.168.0.1, 00:05:04, FastEthernet0/0
D    192.110.88.0/22 is a summary, 00:00:44, Null0

Also,

If you type the following command, "show ip eigrp topology" you can see both networks in the topology table.

It's just the way IOS displays the routes for you... A longer prefix match is preferred over a lower administrative distance (/24 over /22 is preferred over AD 90 vs AD 5).
