adding eigrp network

when I add an eigrp network, do I use the subnet mask, i.e 172.19.0.0 0.0.255.255 ?

Hi Carl,

The IOS is intelligent in this respect. The correct syntax is to use the wildcard mask as you indicated in your example. However, if you use the subnet mask, the parser will automatically convert it to a wildcard mask.

For example, if you configure 'network 172.19.0.0 255.255.0.0', the parse will convert it to 'network 172.19.0.0 0.0.255.255'.

To sum up, either form is acceptable.

Hope that helps - pls do rate the post if it does.

For OSPF, you have to use a wildcard mask, not a subnet mask.

For RIP, you can only specify the network address so you don't really have a choice.

Re: adding eigrp network

you can not define wildcard mask in eigro network statment use the following command

ip summary-address eigrp as-number ip-address wildcard-mask [admin-distance] [leak-map name]

for OSPF you can define wild card with network statment
