EIGRP Manual Summarization

Hi everybody,

I have a problem with EIGRP manual summarization. As you know, you can configure a summary command on an interface, but if you want to send a summary route and a specific route that you have use Leak-map. I tried a lab on GNS3, and I realized that I can add two 'ip summary eigrp 10 x.x.x.x' for the summary route and the specific route. Can someone tell the answer?

EIGRP Manual Summarization

I did a lab. This is before filtering:

R2#sh ip route eigrp

     10.0.0.0/24 is subnetted, 1 subnets

D       10.0.0.0 [90/409600] via 12.12.12.1, 00:00:02, FastEthernet0/0

Now to announce only the summary on R1:

Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.

R1(config)#int f0/0

R1(config-if)#ip summary-address eigrp 1 10.0.0.0 255.0.0.0

R2#sh ip route eigrp

D    10.0.0.0/8 [90/409600] via 12.12.12.1, 00:00:18, FastEthernet0/0

Only the summary is received. Let's see if we can announce the more specific one as well:

R1(config-if)#ip summary-address eigrp 1 10.0.0.0 255.255.255.0

R1(config-if)#do sh run int f0/0

Building configuration...

Current configuration : 197 bytes

!

interface FastEthernet0/0

ip address 12.12.12.1 255.255.255.0

ip summary-address eigrp 1 10.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 5

ip summary-address eigrp 1 10.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 5

R2#sh ip route eigrp

     10.0.0.0/8 is variably subnetted, 2 subnets, 2 masks

D       10.0.0.0/24 [90/409600] via 12.12.12.1, 00:00:25, FastEthernet0/0

D       10.0.0.0/8 [90/409600] via 12.12.12.1, 00:01:17, FastEthernet0/0

That seems to work. How about adding another one?

R1(config-if)#ip summary-address eigrp 1 10.0.0.0 255.255.0.0

R1(config-if)#do sh run int f0/0

*Mar  1 00:03:52.207: %DUAL-5-NBRCHANGE: IP-EIGRP(0) 1: Neighbor 12.12.12.2 (FastEthernet0/0) is resync: summary configured

R1(config-if)#do sh run int f0/0

Building configuration...

Current configuration : 248 bytes

interface FastEthernet0/0

ip address 12.12.12.1 255.255.255.0

ip summary-address eigrp 1 10.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 5

ip summary-address eigrp 1 10.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 5

ip summary-address eigrp 1 10.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 5

R2#sh ip route eigrp

     10.0.0.0/8 is variably subnetted, 3 subnets, 3 masks

D       10.0.0.0/24 [90/409600] via 12.12.12.1, 00:01:12, FastEthernet0/0

D       10.0.0.0/16 [90/409600] via 12.12.12.1, 00:00:16, FastEthernet0/0

D       10.0.0.0/8 [90/409600] via 12.12.12.1, 00:02:04, FastEthernet0/0

So it seems we can add any number of routes we wish as long as there is a component in the summary.

However the usual approach would be to leak the prefix.

EIGRP Manual Summarization

Thanks Daniel for your response,

What advantages is it when using Virtual template interface and Leak-map compared to using many 'ip summary eigrp...' commands? because the second one is simpler.

It depends on the number of routes I suppose. If you want to leak many routes you could have to type in many commands under the interface. For just a few it should not matter much. I'm not sure of what your scenario is. Are you using PPP?
