EIGRP Automatic Redistribution.

If I have a static route as follows :-

ip route Ethernet0/0

and this network is not directly connected (say its a route for a NAT pool)

then I have

router eigrp 925


Does this network automatically get redistributed into eigrp without the redist static command?

Many thx


Re: EIGRP Automatic Redistribution.

Yes it does as a default mask will be associated with your network statement, i would also suggest configuring ip classless

Re: EIGRP Automatic Redistribution.

I mis read your question, if it is a static route it will not be auto distributed, i thouight that was an interface address.

Re: EIGRP Automatic Redistribution.

Tested it and 12.1 does auto as long as there is no mask associated under EIGRP:


router eigrp 100

passive-interface default

no passive-interface Vlan10


ip route Vlan12


sh ip rou eigrp is subnetted, 3 subnets

D [90/130816] via, 00:03:31, Vlan10 is variably subnetted, 11 subnets, 3 masks

D [90/3072] via, 00:03:31, Vlan10

D [90/2816] via, 00:03:31, Vlan10

Sorry for the mix up... it is a bad day..:))

Re: EIGRP Automatic Redistribution.

I think the static route was auto redistributed into EIGRP because this static route was pointed to a interface. According to the following documents, when the next hop of a static route points to an interface, the router considers each of the hosts within the range of the route to be directly connected through that interface.

So int R1, the static route in the routing should be marked as directly connected (C).
