Redistributing BGP into EIGRP


Just a quick question as I feel I am banging my head against a brick wall here: is it actually possible to redistribute eBGP into EIGRP? I'm getting external BGP routes advertised across our MPLS, and I really need to stick them into EIGRP. If it is definitely possible I will post configs etc and explain in more detail!!!

Many thanks,

Re: Redistributing BGP into EIGRP

Redistribution of BGP in to EIGRP (IGP) is possible.

command is as below,

#router eigrp as#

#redistribute bgp as#

Re: Redistributing BGP into EIGRP

Thank you, this is what I have already. Do you have an experience of it working?

Here's what I have:

router eigrp 100

redistribute static route-map redistribute-static-route-to-eigrp

redistribute bgp xxxxx route-map redistribute-bgp-route-to-eigrp

passive-interface default

no passive-interface Vlan21

no passive-interface GigabitEthernet5/0/1



distance eigrp 90 90

no auto-summary

router bgp xxxxx

no synchronization

bgp log-neighbor-changes

bgp redistribute-internal

network mask

aggregate-address as-set summary-only

redistribute static route-map redistribute-static-route-to-mpls

redistribute eigrp 100 route-map redistribute-eigrp-route-to-mpls

neighbor remote-as xxxx

neighbor description MLPS

neighbor soft-reconfiguration inbound

neighbor distribute-list 93 out

no auto-summary


route-map redistribute-bgp-route-to-eigrp permit 10

match ip address 92

Standard IP access list 92

20 permit (2 matches)

30 permit (2 matches)

40 permit (2 matches)

sh ip route

Routing entry for

Route metric is 0, traffic share count is 1

AS Hops 2

And the same for the others. But these routes do not make it to the EIGRP topology table (there are no entries for these networks).

Re: Redistributing BGP into EIGRP

I just figured it out; I needed a default-metric configured.

Yay me! :)

Re: Redistributing BGP into EIGRP

You need to configure a default-metric for routes being redistributed into Eigrp. The routes are otherwise not redistributed.

router eigrp 1

default-metric 10000 10 255 1 1500


route-map redistribute-bgp-route-to-eigrp permit 10

match ip address 92

set metric 10000 10 255 1 1500
