What is the difference between using a passive interface and using a VLSM in your (config-router)network statements? I understand the passive-interface will not transmit (only receive) routing protocol packets (correct me if I am wrong). Whereas I could specify a route mask and block out the interfaces I do not wish to have participate in routing packet transmissions.
Exactly, passive interface only receives but donot transmit out interface. But you cannot specific any mask in eigrp network command, moreover the network you specify in the eigrp network command is summarized to classful boundary. So, you may need to use passive-interface in certain scenerios.
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
