eigrp neighbor command ?

Hi,

Does the 'neighbor' command under eigrp send a unicast request to the neighbor as opposed to the multicast address 224.0.0.10 ?

Regards,

Phil.

Re: eigrp neighbor command ?

Yes it does. Unlike RIP, setting a static neighbor in EIGRP will inhibit the multicast. RIP with a static neighbor will continue to send a multicast as well.

OTOH, the behavior of passive-interface is different in RIP than in EIGRP.

I investigated this recently and wrote a short piece about it in my blog, if you are interested:
