Hello,

Could you give us more information on your lab equipment?

thx,

Vlad

But to test any routing protocols you need at least 2 routers and the correct IOS (as some wont have BGP).

To test BGP and EIGRP I think 3 routers would be the minimum to configure BGP features.

there are many design examples in cisco website.

Thanks Vlad.

My Routers are 1700 Series and switch is 2950.

Any cisco website link you can point to me??

Thanks again!

Hello,

BGP:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk365/tk80/tsd_technology_support_sub-protocol_home.html

EIGRP:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios124/124cg/hirp_c/ch07/index.htm

Also books:

Cisco Press - CCIE Professional Development Routing TCP IP Volume 1 2nd Edition(2005)

Cisco Press - The definitive BGP resource-Internet Routing Architectures Second Edition(2000)

But again, whenever you have any general questions like this, try to be very specific on what you have.

For instance you could have 1701,1710,1711,1720,1721,1750,1751,1751-v

and different versions of IOS 12.2 - 12.4

and many different features sets.

So, whenever possible, provide: Software, Major Release, Platform and Feature Set.

HTH,

if it does, please rate this post.

Vlad
