Re: redistribution

Hello Carl,

it is the seed metric, all IGRP routes will be injected in RIP database with metric 1

when the protocol receiving the routes is RIP like in this case, the seed metric can be used to decide how far the route will be seen

(15 is the max metric value)

Using 1 should be fine regardless of originating protocol unless there is competition between RIP routes and redistributed routes and the last should be used as backup routes

Hope to help

Re: redistribution

Hi there

so does this mean only the first rip router will see the route? wouldnt that be all that is needed anyway, what difference would setting the metric to say 2 make ?

Carl,

No, other RIP routers will see the route. As Giuseppe explaned, the seed metric is a starter metric that gives RIP process a value to start with since RIP does not undestand other vlaues protocols like OSPF and IGRP use.

Re: redistribution

I hate to sound mean, but you have been asking the most basic questions for years now...you said you got your CCNA, so why all these basic questions? You never seem to progress at all.
