Connecting Routers to 6500

First of all thanks, this is very simple, what is best recommended when connecting several routers (internet, partners, extranets, etc) to a 6500? should each link 6500-to-router be a /30 for the single uplink or /24, or maybe 6500-to-router with 2 Eth Interfaces have /29 for all 4 uplinks? does it matter? by the way, this is an EIGRP network...thanks again.

Re: Connecting Routers to 6500

Hi

You can do it a number of ways

Not sure what is the "best" way but out of the two

1) Use a single vlan and have the two router interfaces in the same vlan.

2) Use P2P links for each router connection to the 6500 on a /30 subnet.

i would choose 2 all things being equal.
