How can we redistribute static default routes from 2 different routers into EIGRP?

Our network consists of about 300+ routers running EIGRP. There are four main routers with most of the small remote sites connected to them. Two of these "core" routers have segments attached to firewalls. Both of these routers we have default routes ( statments pointing to the internal address of the firewall. The first is currently redistributing static routes into EIGRP. We would like to redistribute static on the second router so some remote sites use the second available internet connection. I am not sure of the correct way to accomplish this, here are a couple of ideas I have come up with: 1.Do nothing, from the perspective of the second router the redistributed static route will have a higher admin distance and not be used. 2. use an offset-list to increase outbound delay of the static route on the second router.


Re: How can we redistribute static default routes from 2 differe

there are a couple of ways to solve this problem , the easiest one is:

redidtribute the static default route on both routers , then go to the remote site routers , and on the sites that you want to route through the first router increase the delay under the interface towards the second router then check the routing table to see that you are routing with the router that you want .

under the interface the command is delay x

where x is the new value, remember the default delay on serial interfaces is 20000 you can check the value with the show interface command.

remember when you put a new value it need to be entered in tens of microsecnds so if you want to increase it to 40000 just enter 4000.

if after you entered a new delay value and the route in the routing table still does not change to reflect your wish , just increase the value untill you get your desired route entry in the routing table.
