redistribution

why would we need to redistribute say eigrp into rip, would this be for the routers that arent running eigrp such as aniother brand etc so it learns all the routes from both rip and eigrp ?

Re: redistribution

Hey Carl,

Yes you are right. When we have a scenario where we want the Router A which is running RIP wants to connect to the Router B which is running EIGRP " redistribution " is used. We can changing the routing protocol at Router A but sometimes router doesnt have the capability in terms of memory or CPU to run EIGRP so thats the another reason .

Re: redistribution

so could I just set up say router rip without any networks configured and just put the redistribute eigrp 100 command in there and it would learn all the routes needed, or would i still need to put the network what its sitting on in there ?

Re: redistribution

Yep, that is one reason. Another could be that you are merging two networks and don't want to change any exisiting routing protocols in the networks being merged. Redistribution then allows reachability to all prefixes within both networks.
