need router to prefer EIGRP path vs EBGP path for same subnets.
I have a set of networks that are being advertised internally via EIGRP. I am also advertising the networks to the internet via BGP. One of my remotes is also connected to the internet and running BGP also. It is prefering to take the BGP path vs the internel EIGRP path because the administrative distance is lower. 20 for the BGP route and 170 for the EIGRP route. I have used communities to set the metric, weight and local-prefrence inbound on the remote router but it still prefers the external path. I don't want to filter the networks completely but I need to have the remote router prefer the internal EIGRP path. I can't find a nerd knob to set the administrative distance.

I think that will affect all my EIGRP routes but I can be more specific with a routemap. I don't necessarly want to change the admin distance for those netowrks in EIGRP. I think the second solution may work better in my situation. I.E. using the backdoor network under the BGP process. I will try both and let you know how it works.
