HOW WOULD I GET EIGRP TO ADVERTISE A DEFAULT ROUTE, ALSO I HAVE SEEN A COMMAND ON MY ROUTER THAT SAYS REDISTRIBUTE STATIC METRIC 5, CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT THE METRIC IS USE FOR IN THIS CASE AND WHAT VALUES IT GOES TO ?
There are 2 ways of getting EIGRP to advertise a default route:
- redistribute a protocol which already has a default route learned via it
- create a summary-address of 0.0.0.0 using 'ip summary-address eigrp 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0'
Your statement: 'redistribute static metric 5' does not make sense in the context of EIGRP since it requires specification of 5 metric values (bandwidth, delay, reliability, load, MTU). It cannot appear under a 'router eigrp ' config... where did you see it.
You don't specify a next-hop address when using this. The router which receives it will automatically associate a next-hop address with the route based on which interface it was received on. And yes, it will be used as a default route for all unknown traffic.
