Static Routes vs EIGRP

Quick question; Which takes precedence, a route learned via External EIGRP or a directly connected route?

Re: Static Routes vs EIGRP

Hi,

The answer is quite simple, the if multiple routes are available for same destination Network, router would always choose the Routes with lesser Admin Distance.

In case of the Directly connected Route the Admin Distance is zero, where as EIGRP Internal is 90 and EIGRP Summary Route is 5.

Anyways, the Connected Route will be given the consideration over anything else.
