Re: distribution OSPF

When you redistribute into OSPF, the routes are tagged as "External" either type 1 or type 2 default being type 2

Distribute list in OSPF is used for controlling prefixes from being entered into the routing table and not for redistribution

HI, [Do Rate all HELPFUL POSTS]

Refer link below for distribute list with route-map:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios120/120newft/120limit/120s/120s24/routmap.htm

Using Distribute List with Route-Map statements, will be useful to define a Route-Map to prevent OSPF Routes from being added to the Routing Table.

Refer link below for Eg: OSPF Router redistributing the other Protocols:

Re: distribution OSPF

Hi

Routes redistributed into your OSPF process will always be external routes, either type 1 or type 2.

Type 1 = Cost of external route as advertised into the OSPF AS + the internal cost within the OSPF AS.

Type 2 = Just the cost of the external route as advertised into the OSPF AS.

By default the type is 2 but you can change this when you redistribute using the "metric" option.

They would still be external whether you use a distribute list/route-map or not.

Re: distribution OSPF

Hello,

"Redistributing routes into OSPF from other routing protocols or from static will cause these routes to become OSPF external routes."

Distribute-list out: works on originating ASBR, does not let the externals of this ASBR to be flooded in the network towards other OSPF routers

Distribute-list in: does not let incoming LSA's make it to the routing table
