Re: BGP and EIGRP

Hello Khan,

there is an EIGRP interface command that allows to keep the original next hop in routes: it is used together with

int tunnel 100

no ip split-horizon eigrp as-number

no ip next-hop-self eigrp autonomous-system-number

typical usage is in DMVPN using EIGRP on the multipoint GRE virtual flat network on the hub(s) routers.

Without the no ip next-hop-self eigrp autonomous-system-number spoke routers see routes of other spokes with a next-hop = hub router address and this doesn't allow the setup of a dynamic spoke to spoke ipsec tunnel.

Disabling split-horizon is needed to make the hub router able to send updates out the same interface it has learned them.(distance vector aspect of EIGRP)

b) offset-list

if you provide an offset of 0 you are doing nothing.

An offset-list uses an acl to specify over what routes (if present) to apply its metric change action

the acl is a required parameter note the curly brackets { this means mandatory parameter

offset-list {access-list-number | access-list-name} {in | out} offset [interface-type interface-number]

[optional parameter] is to specify an interface

see

Hope to help
