Have peered (BGP) two of my internal routers through my firewalls to our main extranet provider (at two different sites within my network). The aim is to move to a more dynamic routing setup to incorporate a DR/BC approach (availability - tick in the box).
Peering is all working but I have quite a lot of additional routes (well over 700) however these can be summarised to 5 networks. I was hoping the provider would do this for me but having no joy with them at the moment.
What I would like to do is to summarise these routes and redistribute them into my internal routing protocol (EIGRP).
I was thinking of redistributing with a route-map which points to an ip prefix-list with these 5 subnets. Is this a good way of doing it? I have sequenced the list so I can add to it if I ever need too in the future.
The internal routers are on a stick so only have one interface to work with.
I will try the summary-address first (never thought of that one). I take it this will stop the 700+ routes flying around my network and be restricted to my initial redistribution router.
I did contemplate the aggregate route but unsure what impact this would have on the bgp side, I'm assuming that nothing will go back to my provider (poison reverse etc kicking in). Would I need a standard redistribution statement - will this take into account the aggregate route?
you have pointed me in a more productive direction (thought mine solution was too messy)
