Static routes and EIGRP

Static routes and EIGRP

Static routes and EIGRP

hi there,

we have three sites with EIGRP dynamic routing enabled. I would like to enable static in one site for a specified system. My question is can i achieve this if so what are risks and what do i need to be aware off.


RE: Static routes and EIGRP

Hello AmeyUk

Should be no problem to do this.

log onto to the router that you wish to attach your specific system (new server?) and create a static route pointing to it, then log into the EIGRP AS on the router and use the 'redistribute static' command to distribute the static route to the other EIGRP routers

Example =

your 'specific system' as mentioned above has an ip address of, and resides on the network, which is currently accessible via the FastEthernet port 0/0 on Router1. You are running EIGRP AS number 2015.

Router1(Config)#ip route fa0/0 (this creates the static route)
Router1(Config)#router EIGRP 2015 (this puts you into EIGRP config)
Router1(config-router)#redistribute static

you should now see the network in the routing tables of your other routers with an AD of 170, as opposed to 90
