EIGRP Neighbors on broadcast networks(LAN)

Hi Experts,

I have a question that may make me sound dumb.

We have a Cisco 7206 router connected to a Cisco 6513(switchA) switch on vlan92. The switchA is connected to switchB over an etherchannel trunk.

switchA & B both have vlan92 SVI's.

When I check on the router, I can see both the switchA & B vlan92 addresses as EIGRP neighbours to the router. I thought EIGRP neighbours are formed only between directly connected routers or routers conenyed via a GRE tunnel. Can someone explain why this behaviour?

Regards,

Imran.

10.3.92.253- switchA VLAN92 SVI.

Router is directly connected to switchA on Gig 9/45 which is in vlan92.

EIGRP uses multicast address 224.0.0.10 to communicate by default. Any EIGRP enabled router in the same network (same VLAN) will respond to this multicast address, and this is why routers in VLAN92 in your environment will establish neighbor relationship.
