How does split-horizon in eigrp really works in my topology?

Hey there,

I have basic knowledge about what is split-horizon but not how it actually works.

Please refer to the topology below...

topology1.jpg.

According to R1's "show ip eigrp topology all-links"

P 14.0.0.0/30, 1 successors, FD is 1310720, serno 75

        via 13.0.0.2 (1310720/1308160), FastEthernet0/1

        via 12.0.0.2 (1843200/1331200), Serial0/0/1

        via 10.0.0.2 (2195456/1305600), Serial0/1/0

P 17.0.0.0/30, 1 successors, FD is 645120, serno 7

        via 13.0.0.2 (645120/514560), FastEthernet0/1

        via 12.0.0.2 (1052160/540160), Serial0/0/1

        via 10.0.0.2 (2198016/1308160), Serial0/1/0

P 15.0.0.0/30, 1 successors, FD is 2565120, serno 80

        via 11.0.0.2 (2565120/2562560), FastEthernet0/0

        via 13.0.0.2 (2567680/2565120), FastEthernet0/1

        via 12.0.0.2 (3100160/2588160), Serial0/0/1

        via 10.0.0.2 (3100160/2588160), Serial0/1/0

P 172.30.20.0/30, 1 successors, FD is 773120, serno 77

        via 13.0.0.2 (773120/642560), FastEthernet0/1

        via 12.0.0.2 (985600/409600), Serial0/0/1

        via 10.0.0.2 (2323456/1433600), Serial0/1/0

P 16.0.0.0/30, 1 successors, FD is 670720, serno 76

        via 13.0.0.2 (670720/540160), FastEthernet0/1

        via 12.0.0.2 (857600/281600), Serial0/0/1

        via 10.0.0.2 (2221056/1331200), Serial0/1/0

As you can see, R1 has three routes to reach all networks except for network 15.0.0.0 which has four routes. So, R3 is not advertising routes to R1 except for its connected networks. I understand the reason that R1 doesn't have four routes to each network is due to the split-horizon effect.

I want to understand why network 15.0.0.0 is the one that got all four routes. Why not network 14.0.0.0 for example? In other words, how does split-horizon works in this topology. (step by step would be appreciated )

Thanks,

Abdul,

Can you post a "sh ip eigrp topology all-links" from R3 please.
